Mandy loves human companionship and sitting on people’s laps. This sweet, gentle girl is quite friendly and affectionate, and she would be great with kids. She doesn’t do well with other cats so she needs a home with no other cats. She likes to be groomed, and she needs a good brushing at least a couple times a week. Call Humane Haven Animal Shelter at 630-378-4208 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit www.hhas.org.
Young Buford is a cute and friendly boy who needs a human playmate and feline buddy. He enjoys looking out the window and playing with all sorts of toys. Although he enjoys the company of people, when he’s had enough “hands-on” attention, he will let his companion know by “mouthing,” but he has never bitten. Due to this, it’s recommended that he not be in a home with small children. Call Humane Haven Animal Shelter at 630-378-4208 or email email@example.com. Visit www.hhas.org.
