Happy Tails


We received this collage from adopter Katie G. They adopted Cassie (fka Talula) almost 10 years ago! Katie told us “She will be 11 in January but has been apart of our family from before our kiddos. She is the original baby. lol. Thanks Tails for helping us find the perfect kitty for our family.” Thanks to you for providing Cassie with a loving home for all of these years. We love to hear from about our alums!
