Who We Follow

LOST CAT: If you’re in the Long Lake area, please be on the lookout for this lost kitty. She is an unspayed female and was wearing a pink harness when she got out. She has been gone for over a week and her family misses her very much. Please call Bridget at 231-689-0656.

A very kind man and his kids came into PetSmart yesterday with this little three week old bottle baby kitten. He was hoping we would be there, and if not, he was going to buy a bottle and Kitten Milk Replacer. He said the kitten had a scratch under her chin. That scratch was a wound with a hole in the middle. We could actually watch the wound and see movement. Two of our volunteers rushed the kitten to Bay Area Pet Hospital, Traverse City Michigan and bottle fed her along the way. The poor little girl had a Cuterebra and two maggots were removed and the wound was flushed. (Don’t worry, we won’t share those photos.) :) Many thanks to the nice man who found her, our volunteers, and the good people at Bay Area Pet Hospital! What should we name this little cutie??

Our special Black Cat Appreciation Adoption Weekend continues today! Please stop by to visit our wonderful black cats from 1:00 - 4:00pm at PetSmart in Traverse City.

Today is the start of our Black Cat Appreciation Adoption Weekend! In honor of tomorrow’s Black Cat Appreciation Day we will have all of our black cats ready to go to their new homes. Please visit our black kitties (like these cuties) today from 12-4pm and tomorrow 1-4pm.

Beautiful six year old littermates, Sundance and Butch, will be featured at PetSmart this weekend! They were adopted out, but sadly returned as their owner had to move and could not take them. Sundance is a beautiful female black cat with medium length hair. She will be a bit shy going into a new home. Butch is a short haired black male kitty. He is more outgoing and will be anxious to explore his new home. Both are great, loving, and friendly cats who will make a wonderful addition to any family. They have always been together and never apart, so we would like them to be adopted to the same home. Stop by PetSmart in Traverse City to meet Sundance and Butch along with our other wonderful black cats! #BlackCatAppreciationDay

Here’s another wonderful black cat to appreciate — Little was found as a very sick girl. She was very thin and had a ruptured abscess on her cheek. After lots of loving care from her foster mom, Little is now healthy and ready to go to her new home. She is a smart, high energy kitty who loves her toys and loves to play. When she is ready to cuddle she loves to be petted, cupping her head in your hand hoping you will rub her ears. If you want a kitty who will keep you smiling and laughing, she is the one for you! Little is a very pretty short haired black cat who is about a year old. You can meet Little at PetSmart in Traverse City this weekend as part of our Black Cat Appreciation Day Adoption Weekend!
