Every Saturday and Sunday:
Kitten & Cat Adoptions at PETS MART in Nanuet, NY- 11:30 to 4 PM.
Do you have room in your heart or home to adopt a beautiful and loving cat or kitten? Cats and kittens are easy to care for, they clean up after themselves (in the litter box),
don't have to be walked, and can even stay home for a day or two by themselves
(with plenty of food and water) if you go away. They love to play and cuddle and petting and brushing a pet's soft fur is actually proven to reduce stress and promote wellness and relaxation. If you are older, perhaps an older cat that is calmer would be the perfect pal. If you are looking for a more active and playful pet, then a kitten may be your choice. Stop by PETS MART in Nanuet on Saturday's or Sundays from 11:30 to 4 PM to visit beautiful cats and kittens that want to make you their fur-ever friend!
