WHMP Heavy Petting Dakin Pet of the Week

Perugina~Domestic Short Hair cat~Tortoiseshell~Spayed Female~8 weeks old

Like many of the kittens who come to Dakin, Perugina was in foster care for a little while before she was old enough to come back to the adoption center to await her new home.   Perugina spent time with a 10 year old child and a four pound Yorkshire Terrier in her foster home. Perugina was with her foster family for nearly two weeks and here is what they had to say about her:

“Perugina is very lovable and is very cuddly.  She likes to be held.  She has  sweet temperament and loves to play.  Perugina can be a little apprehensive at first but quickly becomes affectionate once she meets you.  She’s a sweetheart and wonderful to have around.  She is also very brave and good with small dogs.”

Dakin has lots of kittens available for adoption with more coming in every day.  Every adoption includes spay/neuter surgery, age appropriate vaccinations, testing, microchipping, collar and id tag, and starter kit of food.  And most importantly…a lifetime of love for you all wrapped in these cute little bodies!

Can’t adopt but want to help?  Consider joining our foster caregiver volunteers and help us save lives!
