  3. 3. Hi, my name is Bennie. I am looking for a family to love! Kids are great! They play with you lots and when they get tired, you can snuggle next to them and they’re warm and their little hands will pet you – it’s so nice! You know what else is great? Other cats. I’m totally cool with other cats. Now, I do have one rule (to keep my feline street cred, you know) and that’s “no picking me up, please”. I’m not a “pick up and carry around” cat, I’m a “play the whole day long then sleep hard and do it again” cat! I hope that’s okay? So if you know of someone who is looking for a cat like me – great with kids and other cats, super playful, really friendly, and outgoing – can you please send them my way?

  6. 6. My name is Gizmo and I am ready to be adopted! Gizmo is a 7 year old Chihuahua Mix girl who is just delightful and she loves belly rubs! Gizmo is house trained. She likes women, but tends to be a little spooky with strange men and may bark at them at first but she soon settles down when she realizes that they won’t eat her. She has lived with a man and did just fine. Adoptable Animals Gizmo My name is Jennyanydots and I would love to join your family! When I was out there by myself, I wasn’t doing well. I didn’t realize how thin I’d gotten until a nice person saw me and said, “Oh my goodness! You’re skin and bones! Don’t worry, sweetie - I’ll get you some help!” Because that kindness it brought me here to the MCSPCA and I got medicine and care I needed. I am now ready to be adopted! Jennyanydots

The place where I grew up, it wasn’t very nice. And I guess I didn’t learn some stuff like other cats learn.
