ZANESVILLE, OHIO — Placing a yellow adopted tag on his cage, Linda Ehrnfield opened the cage door and picked up the grey and white kitten that would become the family’s new “furever” pet.
The young kitten was just one of the 51 felines that found homes Saturday during the “Super Cat Adoption” Day at the Muskingum County Animal Shelter Inc. on Newark Road. A special fee of $10 was charged for any feline, and included spaying or neutering, vaccinations, FIV and leukemia test, worming and a HomeAgain Microchip Larry Hostetler, director, said.
“You’re saving not only the life of a kitty but you’re getting a $40 savings,” Ehrnfield said. “It’s a real good opportunity to adopt a cat today with all the incentives,” Ehrnfield said.
Ehrnfield was not able to take the kitten home with her because it needed neutered before leaving the shelter. She will use the time to prepare for the kittens arrival. The kitten will have four children who will be playing with it.
“That’ll give me a few days to get the things (cat supplies) together. He’s a cute kitty but we’ll let the kids name him,” she said.
