Reunited and happy to be home this week are Brady and Brodie, as well as the cat Bella. September is “Adopt a Cat” month at ARF. And for a limited time, you can take two home for the price of one. Double the love.


Sunkist, known as Sunny, has been very busy keeping up with the two kittens in the cattery. Tippy, the gray kitty, still needs some grooming now and then, and Sunny, being a mom, steps right in. Boomer, the orange tabby, is her son, and that means she keeps him in line, too. Boomer, short for Boomerang, keeps his day exciting by showing his great running skills, as well as climbing the cat tree before Tippy can. Both kittens show great success in catching flies, so no need for that fly swatter. Sunkist is about 2 years old, Tippy and Boomer are under a year.


We have several cats who have already chosen their best fur buddy to be adopted with. Sadie and Carly, the tux identical twins, would love to be together forever. Pepper, a young black and white female, can often be seen cuddled closely with Tommy, our large gray tabby. Their favorite pasttime is in the outdoor cattery keeping up with all creatures that fly.


Bella, the Anatolian shepherd/Aussie-mix, and her sister Sophia are a two-for-one package. They absolutely love each other. Both are about 10 months old and eager to play and learn. Ready to be adopted, they are a bit shy, but have no problem remembering how to do the tail wag. They are learning how to walk on the leash. What a great addition to your family.
