If you haven't heard about it yet, June is "Adopt a Shelter Cat Month"! So this week, we'd like to introduce you to a couple of cool cats that are looking for their forever homes at the Newark Humane Society, in Newark, New Jersey.
Please say hello to Lucy!
Lucy is a little over a year old, and has spent most of her life at the shelter. She's a gentle sweetie that loves to play & get pets!
Next, please meet Onyx!
|*psst: This gal looks a lot like my furbrother Wren!*|
Onyx is another playful kitty that has spent way too much time at the shelter. They say she's very vocal too, she'll be sure to let you know when she wants your attention!
Breaking news! During Adopt-A-Cat Month, cat and kitten adoption fees will be reduced from $75 to $50. Two cats or two kittens can be adopted together for the special reduced rate of $75. All cats and kittens will be micro-chipped free of charge. If the cat has not been altered, there is an additional low-cost fee of $35 or with the adoption of two cats, the altering fee is $60 for both.
As a thank you to those who already have brought cats into their lives, owners may bring their cats into our Animal Care Center and have them fitted with a Home Again microchip for only $20. Anyone adopting a cat or kitten or bringing in their own pets for micro-chipping will also receive a free family pass to Popcorn Park in Forked River, NJ!
The above offer is only for the month of June. The adoption fee includes cardboard cat carrier, collar, i.d. tag and vaccinations. With each adoption, the Society will present a DVD on TRAINING YOUR DOG OR YOUR ADOPTED CAT at no charge. The dog video will include problems with chewing, jumping, mouthing, etc., but who trains a cat, BOL? There are $300 worth of free coupons offered with the dog video and $100 in free coupons for each cat adopter. It's a win - win buddies!
One of the reasons many cats are surrendered to shelters is that they have a need to scratch. Some people see this behavior as destructive and give them up to a shelter or will resort to having them declawed, which is a terrible thing to do to any creature!
While mom was at BlogPaws, she spent a lot of time in the Cat Style Lounge, checking out all the cool new merchandise for kitties! Our cats really love their cardboard scratchers. They go through them, well, like cardboard BOL! She was very impressed with the PetFusion line of scratchers. So just last week she ordered one online when she saw there was a sale.
It should arrive soon, but in the meantime, the nice people from PetFusion got in touch with the visitors to the Cat Style Lounge to offer a 10% discount on their 3 new products: the Reversible Curve, 3 Sided Vertical, and Jumbo Scratcher Lounge.
Just visit their Amazon shop here, then when you've finished shopping, enter the promo code newpet10. The code is good through June 15th, 2014. These scratchers are made of recycled and recyclable corrugated cardboard and non-toxic corn starch glue. Their durable construction and dense cardboard promises to last longer than other scratchers.
So, just to let you know, we weren't paid or given any compensation for writing about the PetFusion scratchers. We just want to share the price break if anyone is interested in purchasing one for their home. We'll be sure to let you know how this one holds up to our menagerie!
The Tuesday's Tails Blog hop features shelter pets, all waiting for their forever homes. Please consider featuring a cat, dog or any pet at your local shelter on your blog and join the hop! Sharing these friends will certainly improve their chances of being adopted!
