Pet Personals - Carol's Ferals - Will and Monkey (click for more info)
WYCE and Carol's Ferals bring you today's Pet Personals. The mission of Carol's Ferals is TNR - Trap-Neuter-Return, the most humane way to reduce cat overpopulation. They also have also rescued many friendly healthy, altered cats & kittens that are now up for adoption. Today meet "Will and Monkey"! Will is a short-hair grey and white Tiger boy. Monkey is a short-hair black and white girl. This one-and-a-half-year-old brother and sister super duo would like a forever home together, since they're bonded to each other. The ideal home would be quiet, with a kind, caring, and patient owner and one other cat or a dog that likes cats. To receive an Adoption Application for "Will and Monkey", email "adoption at carolsferals dot org". The next Carol's Ferals Adoption Day is this Saturday, November 6th at Carol's NEW facility at 4600 Knapp NE near Knapp's Corner.
