Kitties from Santa?

The Seattle Humane Society will have cocoa, apple cider, pumpkin pie, Santa and elves this weekend at their holiday event. Added bonus for thse needing to procure a cat this Christmas, adoption fees on all cats over a year old are waived for the month of December. While this doesn’t sound like an answer to our problem of Moon asking Santa for a real-live-dinosaur, it does sound like a great chance to bring a new pet home. Their press release follows:

The public is invited to the Seattle Humane for a special celebration, “Home for the Holidays” from noon until 6 p.m. Dec. 13-14. Come meet Santa, enjoy holiday treats, and visit with adorable kittens, puppies, dogs and cats who would make perfect companions for your family.

Elves will be on hand to help visitors find a cuddly companion who’s just right for them. The Seattle Humane Society is located in Bellevue at the junction of I-405 and I-90. Call (425) 641-0080 for directions or go to www.seattlehumane.org/explore/ contact/directions.

“What better gift can any of us give during this holiday season than to save the life of an orphaned animal?” asks Brenda Barnette, CEO of
the Seattle Humane Society.

Research shows that more families invite pets into their homes during the holidays than any other time of year. Adopting from a shelter makes sense. Shelters want to make the right match with a person’s lifestyle because getting a companion animal is adding a member to the
family.
