Our pet pick of the week is actually a pair of really sweet cats, a sister act, Penguin and Fray. Unfortunately, the landlord said no pets allowed, so these two landed at the shelter in search of a new home. Penguin and Fray are nearly mirror images of each other. They share many of the same black-and-white tuxedo markings, the same adorable pink nose, and a sweet disposition. However, you can tell them apart because Penguin has a bob tail and, at a whopping 19 pounds, her silhouette is, shall we say, a bit rounder than Fray’s, who is “slimmer” at 15 pounds.

These inside-only gals need a home where they can chase a laser pointer or pounce on some toy mice to get them to a healthier weight. They’re family, so we want them to stay together. This duo is looking for a family that wants twice as much love. Is that your family? Stop in and meet Penguin and Fray. You’ll be happy you did.

If adopting two cats isn’t in the cards, consider adopting Hope, a beautiful 6-year old calico, hoping to be someone’s first choice. Currently, she’s bunking with Penguin and Fray and doesn’t mind the company, so she’d be fine with other cats in the home. She came in last month as a stray from Warren. Although we don’t know her history, we do know that she is a personable feline who doesn’t mind hanging with other cats, is litterbox trained and enjoys getting attention. She would be a great lap cat for that perfect lap. Did we mention Hope is absolutely gorgeous too? What more could you want?

Join us Friday, Oct. 12, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for our Fall for a Furry Friend adoption event at the Union Agway! Staff from PMHS will be on hand with animals looking for their new homes. If you’re ready to fall in love and adopt, you can have an application completed and approved for the event by visiting our website for an application and email it to applications@hskcme.org. Thank you to Union Agway for supporting the adoption of shelter animals.

We have a volunteer orientation coming up Oct. 13. If you are interested in volunteering at the shelter, you can start by attending one of our orientation sessions. It’s only an hour long (11 a.m. to noon) and a great way to learn about how to get involved and help us make a difference in the lives of local homeless animals.

Wish list: 6-inch paper plates, bleach, Clorox wipes, zip-lock bags (gallon and quart sizes), paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags (13- and 33-gallonl.), canned cat food (poultry pate style), and gift certificates to Walmart, Staples and other local stores.
