Max Cat is nice, friendly and curious. It takes him a little while to get used to new surroundings and people, so he’d do best with someone who’s calm and patient with him. He enjoys playing with toys and likes to look out the window. He’s doesn’t care for small children, so he’d do best in a home with adults as the only pet. This sweet guy would love to find his forever home. Call Humane Haven Animal Shelter at 630-378-4208 or email email@example.com. Visit www.hhas.org.
Nickie is a smart, older, front de-clawed who takes a long time to build trust, but once she does she’ll be a friend forever.
