WHMP Dakin Heavy Petting Pet of the Week

Ellie (kitten), Domestic shorthair/mix, 2 months old, Female, Grey/tan coat

Ellie is a complete charmer!  This darling kitten is just 2 months old and is ready to go to a new and loving home.  She’s the right mix of cuddly and playful and can’t wait to curl up and snooze near a sunny windowsill…after she’s had a busy day being active and awesome, of course.  Look into those eyes…how you can you resist her?  Ellie’s available at Dakin’s Springfield location.  Hours are noon to 5:30pm today (Wednesday), noon to 7:30pm on Thursdays and noon to 5:30pm on Friday.  Hurry though…a cutie like this will not last long!
