Allow us to introduce you to this week's Pet of the Week from the Vanderburgh Humane Society, Loaf! See her in action!

Today is International Cat Day! We currently have around 324 cats when I last counted this evening. Our kittens are starting to bottleneck in the shelter because they’re not tiny anymore, and by 4 months old they‘ve grown into big teenage “cattens.” Happens every year once school starts and the spring/summer demand for a new tiny kitten slows down. While fosters are always needed, the focus now needs to be people coming to adopt!

We now have several litters of kittens in foster care and even a few at the shelter ready for adoption, so the “Kitten Season Please Help” plea begins now. Foster homes are needed. For kittens by themselves, and also for moms with kittens. Fostering is 100% free. We provide everything INCLUDING food (not all organizations do.) Fostering is also not indefinite with us. The goal is for you to have the kittens as short a time as possible until they can come back to the shelter for adoption — the littler they are, the more people want them. You will not have the same foster animals for years on end.

Wanna watch cats playing LIVE 24/7 (if they’re not sleeping) on their new Petcube Play in the Cageless Cat Lounge. Download the free Petcube app, create an account, and find “VHS Cat Lounge.” The camera runs all the time and if you turn your phone to landscape, you can control the built-in laser pointer and play with the kittens!
