Ernie is a very nice boy who likes people and other cats. He’s sweet and affectionate and likes to be petted and rub up against his people/companions to show he’s happy. He also loves to carry his toy rat around. Since he doesn’t like to sit on laps or be carried, he’d probably do best in a home without young children. Call Humane Haven Animal Shelter at 630-378-4208 or email email@example.com.
Elvis is a sweet gentle giant with a huge heart. He is very nice, calm and quite good-natured. He’s a bit shy, but he quickly warms up with soft pets and a soothing voice. He’s a front de-claw. He would do best as an only pet in a quiet forever home. Call Humane Haven Animal Shelter at 630-378-4208 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
