I have never been an advocate of giving an animal as a Christmas gift. However, December is a wonderful time to bring a new animal into the home as people are often off work during the holidays and can spend time with their new furry addition.
Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS) is having a Mew Years Cat Adoption special until December 31, 2017. Adoption fees are:
- $25 for cats!
- $75 for kittens!
As I previously wrote, we recently had to say goodbye to our 18-year old Ariel and our hearts are broken. This past Saturday, we adopted an AARCS kitty and we named him Otto (formerly known as Boron). That's him in the photo to the right. He's such a wonderful addition to our family.
In the few short days he's been in our home he has brought us so much joy, happiness and laughter. We couldn't love him more. It doesn't erase the pain of losing Ariel or her memory, but he's a sweet diversion while we heal from our loss.
You can do the same! Take a moment to visit AARCS' site and find the purr-fect kitty of your dreams. You'll be so glad you did and you will be giving an animal in need a forever home. They all deserve to find that and you'll have a Happy Mew-Year!
