Thursday the 29th was National Cat Day.
One of the stated goals of NCD is to find homes for adoptable cats. Many of these cats would really rather be in a furrever home than their current situation. I went to a few area PetSmart stores and looked at their adoptable cats, but I did not hold or pet any of them today.
My first stop was in Mattoon, where cats from Edgar County and Effingham were waiting for adoption.
Amber, a pretty little calico, came from the Effingham Animal Rescue Sanctuary (EARS). Her mother was a stray and her siblings have found homes already.
Bender is a tabby from the Edgar County Humane Association (ECHA). He has been in two foster homes.
Wilma is a grey tuxie from ECHA. She was the runt of her litter and the rest of them have found homes.
At the Decatur PetSmart, all the kitties were asleep, so I did not take any pictures of them.
Then it was off to Champaign, where I saw Buttons, a Siamese mix (some tabby features, but the voice of a Siamese) from Prairieland Shelter. She came to the shelter when her previous human died.
Black cat Bella and two kittens were also there ; I did not get enough information to describe them. The tuxedo kitten wanted to play, and stuck her hand through the cage to get to my phone (with my camera).
