This is Minette, our foster cat. Except if my kids get their way she’ll either be Minou or Cookie.
And she can come to live at your house, if you’re ready to give a sweet, sweet kitty some love, food and a little shelter.
How sweet is she? Ten minutes after the SPCA dropped her off, she was purring and letting my three year old pick her up. Two hours later, she’d gone upstairs and slept on my son’s bed (thrilling him entirely.) Despite challenges from my two cats and barking from Jasper (the rocks-in-his-head Lab) she kept her cool and is right now (six hours after she was dropped off) in my bedroom on the trunk at the end of the bed, fast asleep.
She’s beautiful, isn’t she?
You can talk to someone about giving Minette a permanent home at 902-350-2444, or call that same number to volunteer to foster another kitty in need of a place to stay until someone adopts them. The shelter will pay for food, litter and any medical issues the animal has while it’s in your care. Fostering a cat (or a dog!) is a wonderful way to introduce your children to making the world a better place for companion animals and giving them an insight into the importance of finding animals the perfect home.
Besides, who could resist that face??
