Gadget (1st picture) - This five year old Einstein of a kitty is multi-talented. As a matter of fact, he won "best cat to have a conversation with" in our first PAWS Contest. Kevin and I have discovered that Gadget meows like it's going out of style until people give him some undivided attention. Once they do, he's quiet as a mouse. (: And we recently discovered that he likes a good lap, too! Oh how we love that boy!
Sweetheart (2nd picture) - Our dear Sweetheart may be hearing- and sight-challenged, but she somehow always manages to find a lap in her room! As soon as we sit on the floor, she's climbing right up onto our laps to stake her claim. And she'll stay there all day if given the chance. Kevin and I are hoping that an older person looking for a quiet lap cat will discover Sweetheart. Now THAT would be a perfect match.
Claire (3rd picture) - I proudly refer to Claire as my "butterball of love." And while she may be a chubby girl, she is quite energetic when it comes to luring a volunteer into her room to get in some some good lap time! Once this sweet kitty gets onto a lap, she positions herself so that she's resting her front limbs across the person's chest. (:
While all three of these kitties give good lap, we have to say that the winner of "Best Lap Cat" goes to (drum roll please) ... SWEETHEART! This girl simply won't leave a lap for anything. She won't leave a lap for food (sorry Claire). She won't leave a lap to go exploring (sorry Gadget). It's almost as though sitting in a lap is Sweetheart's calling. And for that, we offer her our heartiest congratulations!
To Sweetheart, Gadget and Claire. Your perfect adopters are out there just waiting to discover how special each of you is. We love you all!
Many thanks to everyone who voted for Pepper (and helped get the word out about voting) in the Petfinder "Whiskers" Awards contest. The winners will be announced June 30th. Stay tuned! :)
