June Is Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month

"June is busting out all over"....the shelters are full to the rafters and are busting at the seams with kittens and cats!!  According to the  ASPCA June is Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month. We agree that that should be the theme every month, but since every Spring an enormous number of kittens are born, we think it is great to raise awareness to please, please adopt a shelter cat! You will never regret that decision, your heart and your home will be over flowing with furry love, that is the BEST gift that you could give  to yourself and others.

I want to remind the folks in Michigan that Kitty City II is having their GRAND OPENING  starting at 4 p.m. on Friday, June 1 through  5 p.m. on Sunday,  June 3.  Adoption fee of $59 includes spay or neuter, vaccines and health check.   All cats are from Oakland Pet Adoption Center in Auburn Hills or Elizabeth Lake Animal Rescue in Waterford.

Kitty City II is identical to the original Kitty City at Pet Supplies Plus in Bloomfield Hills.  Both are free- roaming, cage free adoption centers, designed by Addy Shattuck, that enable kitties waiting for new homes to watch the birds outside through floor-to-ceiling windows, lounge in miniature arm chairs, and enjoy the soft breeze of an overhead ceiling fan.  Shattuck designed each Kitty City with plenty of perches for cats to climb, soft beds for sleeping and concealed litter boxes for privacy.  At any given time, each Kitty City is a temporary home to 20 or more cats.

Event sponsors include

On Sunday, June 3 customers can bring their cats and dogs to a pet health care fair from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. that includes free wellness exams and reduced cost vaccines, feline leukemia tests and microchipping provided by Union Lake Veterinary Hospital.  They will also be treated to a free barbecue lunch from noon to 3 p.m.

As a special treat I will be volunteering Sunday, June 3rd starting at 11am and there is a super great rumor that Pam from Pet Blogs United will be joining me! How great will that be? I get to FINALLY meet her in pawson!! I was telling Pam that with both of us living in Michigan it is pitiful that we have to cross the country to meet at BlogPaws! Heck, we live 30 minutes apart for Pete's sake! I am hoping she is there Sunday because it will be great to meet her!

So, if you are in the SE Michigan area,  stop by and enjoy the GRAND OPENING of Kitty City II, come and meet  Pam and I, bring some friends and help to give these deserving babies their furever homes!! 

Kitty City II is located at:
  Pet Supplies Plus in White Lake Twp.
 6845 Highland Rd.
