Feb. 14 is fast approaching and here is your chance to be a valentine. There are several cats at the Yolo County Animal Shelter who want to be your one and only! They are sweet, loving cats who love, love, love their humans but can’t stand other cats.
First is Sassy, a soft, chubby 5- to 7-year-old gray-and-white spayed female. Give her a soft bed and she is kneading (did we mention she has extra toes!) and purring away. Sassy was brought in as a stray and we don’t know her whole story, but she tells us that she remembers a good life, safe, with love and comfort that is lost to her now. She needs someone special to rescue her and give her a hand to return her to that loving life.
Sophia is a sweetie who shows her appreciation of your attention by kneading, purring and rubbing against your hand. She prefers your lap or sitting beside you to any wild play. She is a tuxedo girl about 6 years old who would respond best in a quiet home with a sunny spot to snooze and a human with a patient and tender touch.
Both these cats may be visited at the shelter at 2640 Gibson Road in Woodland. Hours are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 4 p.m. Saturdays. For more information, contact Angela at [email protected].
Shiloh is a 4- to 5-year-old seal point Siamese also in need of an “only cat” home. She is being fostered; for more information, call Jean at 530-735-6585. All of these cats may be viewed on Petfinder.com.
From now until Feb. 17, all cats and dogs at the shelter may be adopted for the reduced price of $90. Pit bulls and Chihuahua mixes are $50 and a very special border collie named Lady is $25. Also, the cats described above are $25. On $5 Fridays, all animals are $5.
Won’t you be a hero today and adopt one of our special creatures to be your valentine?
