This week is Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet week, that means to take a chance on an older pet, one with a mild disability or maybe one who prefers to be your one and only. Mum thinks it is a great promotion, and she loves the idea she heard about a couple of years ago. It is where a shelter in the UK, pairs older unwanted cats and dogs, with older adoptee parents, who may not want to take on a young pet. They also promise to take back the pet if the parent gets ill. That way a lovee may get to have a good home for a few years or the rest of their live, rather than living in a cage.
Anyways these two sweeties are at the local SPCA, here in Newtown, Wellington, NZ. We know that many of you don't live close - but please meet:
Titaina - she has been in the spca since sept 2009. She is described as a sweet girl who is just a bit shy. She would like to be adopted out to a quieter home without young children. She doesn't mind other cats, as long as they are nice to her.
This is Sophie, and she has been at the SPCA since May. Doesn't she look like me!!!
She is described as being a beautiful affectionate girl, who is far too cuddly for her own good, and therefore needs to lose some weight (oh sister - surely we are twins!!). She needs an owner who isn't tempted to give her treats, and will help her lose some of her cuddliness.
We wish that every shelter kitty could find a person to love, and somewhere warm and sunny to sleep.
