WHMP Heavy Petting Dakin Pet of the Week

Kringo~Domestic Short Hair~Neutered Male~2 years

Kringo came to Dakin after the family who had offered to care for him on a temporary basis was left holding the bag…er, uh…cat.  Kringo’s original family never came back for him.  Kringo was a lovely house guest though.  He was happy to be indoors only and loves all people.  While in his temporary home he lived with adults and older children.  Visitors were always welcome and he loved them too.  Oh, and the dog…well, they adored each other with Kringo rubbing on him and the two of them enjoying playtime together.  And while Kringo enjoys paper bags and other toys that crackle, he is always gentle in play.  When playtime is over, being a couch potato is another favorite activity.

By the way, Dakin adoption centers in Springfield and Leverett have a lot of adult cats like Kringo in need of new homes.  Summer is always the busiest time of year for felines…especially adult felines…because they are often in competition with the wee kittens.   Because Dakin is all about saving lives, we have decided to host a special $5 Feline adoption event this Friday and Saturday, 7/12 and 13 at both locations.  That’s right!  All cats (six months and older) can go home for just $5!  Every adoption includes spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, testing, microchipping, collar and id tag, and starter kit of food.  And most important…a lifetime of love just for you!
