Meet the latest furry friends

Hello. My name is Valencia and I am a beautiful spayed 3 year old dilute calico. Valencia is what they call me here, a place full of other cats just like me. There are dogs here too. I can hear them barking in the distance. At first it seemed like a scary place until I remembered where I was before coming here. Then I realized that this is a very good place.

When I first arrived I had some doubts. First, I was given a bath. I was rubbed with some soapy stuff and rinsed with clean water; I was definitely not impressed with this thing they call a bath. But soon I began to feel better and even smell better. Next I was given some awful tasting stuff to rid my body of any worms I might have. I was given another medication to get rid of those pesky little fleas that kept biting me.

Then things started to look up big time. I found that I had a clean soft bed to rest on and lots of cat food and clean water to nourish my thin body. Finally, I was able to relax. I know I am safe here. I see my fellow feline friends and I’m so happy to know we are now safe. You see, some of us didn’t make it.

Today is another new day and a special one for me. For on this day I was moved to a room where I can be surrounded by so many friendly felines. We are given lots of attention and love pats from our human friends who take care of us. We are now happy and healthy, but we are missing something in our lives. We are missing that thing they call a “forever home”; a place where we have a special “human” friend who loves us and takes care of us and spends lots of time just being close to us.

Please don’t get me wrong. I am grateful to have been found and brought to this special place where I can heal. I have been cared for and loved. But I, along with my other friends, are still missing that one true piece of happiness that would complete our lives. The love of a forever home. If you are considering adopting a feline friend, please stop by the Huntingdon County Humane Society and ask to meet me and my friends that are available for adoption. Help us to find the missing piece in our lives, our forever home.
