Ursula is a sweet kitty who is a bit shy, yet talkative. Like many torties she’s independent and can be a little unpredictable. She prefers human companions over other cats. She likes petting and attention but can quickly need some “alone time.” Ursula would do best as an only cat with no small children in the home. She’d love to find her forever best friend. Call Humane Haven Animal Shelter at 630-378-4208 or email email@example.com. Visit www.hhas.org.
Mickey is friendly and affectionate. He likes to sit in high places, like the top of the cat tree, so he can see what’s happening. He likes toys, especially feather wand toys. He’s comfortable with people and previously lived with other cats so he does well with them, but he doesn’t do well with children. Call Humane Haven Animal Shelter at 630-378-4208 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit www.hhas.org.
Jax is a boxer and mountain cur mix and is doing wonderfully in his foster home with another dog and some kids. He is very playful yet will chill on the couch too.
