Cats for Adoption: Sissy and Hummer
Ed’s note: Sissy and Hummer have found a new home!
Sissy, a tabby female, and her brother, Hummer, were abandoned in a park when they were only a few days old. Rescued, they were bottle-fed round the clock and now, at the age of 6 weeks, are in need of a permanent home. The two are inseparable and the shelter is hoping to keep them together. ARK urges people to neuter their animals. Figures illustrate the sad facts of how the “miracle of birth” usually ends. In 2007, the Nara hokenjo alone took in 2,705 kittens. In 2007, the Nara pound killed 2,705 kittens. Life is too precious to be snuffed out. ARK is also issuing a special plea for people interested in providing summer foster homes for kittens still too young for adoption. Please help.
