Jilly loves to be held, likes to explore, and has lots of fun playing with toys. Her human companions would need to watch her diet, because she is very food-motivated and loves to beg for treats. Properly introduced, she should be fine with other cats in the household. She’s a very nice girl who would love to find her forever home. Call Humane Haven Animal Shelter at 630-378-4208 or email email@example.com.
Lily is sweet and easy-going. She loves attention and affection and likes to romp and play. Feather toys are her favorite. She’s very comfortable being around people, but she doesn’t care for other cats, so she’d do best in a home as an only pet. Call Humane Haven Animal Shelter at 630-378-4208 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
