Purr-fect cats and kittens looking for homes
  
Toronto Animal Services (TAS) and the Ontario Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) will conduct a two-day cat adoption blitz this week
as a wrap-up to Adopt-A-Cat month.

"We have more than 150 cats and kittens in need of a home," said Sue
Shearstone, TAS East Supervisor. "Our staff will be on hand Friday and Saturday
to help people pick the perfect cat. There will also be colouring contests for
the kids and light refreshments."

The cats have been vaccinated except for rabies and have been de-wormed. They
are also micro-chipped and licensed before leaving the shelter. Many have also
been spayed or neutered.

"Choosing the right pet can be difficult but with so many cats and kittens to
choose from, it's easy to find the right one," said Linda Knowles, Chair of the
North York/Scarborough SPCA Advisory Committee.

Members of the public interested in adopting a cat can visit the Toronto Animal
Services East Shelter, 821 Progress Ave., on Friday, June 24, from 11 a.m. to
6:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 25, from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
