A Tale of Two Kitties - several years ago, my 2 grandchildren were visiting and with their parents permission we set out to adopt a kitten for each from the Monroe County Animal Shelter. Will said he wanted a "Russian Blue" and I asked him why. He said his Dad had found a coffee mug buried in their yard and it had a picture of a Russian Blue on it. That sounded like a good enough reason and he was prepared to pick out which of the Russian Blues he might find at the shelter. Highly unlikely, I thought. The first kitten that came up to him and flung its little paws around him was something that looked grayish blue and when I asked the "cat lady" she said it was a Russian Blue! It had adopted Will. Not only that, a male littermate appeared and decided that he would go home with Laura, so there we all were, with two Russian Blue kittens from our very own shelter. One tiny glitch was that my grandson wanted a cat to call Spike and the one that chose him was most definitely a female. So we now have Spike and Princess, Princess being almost twice the size of Spike, but it is a very happy beginning for the Tale of Two Kitties. Make the Monroe County Animal Shelter the first place to shop when you're looking for a new pet. The most amazing animals are there! Please post your “New Beginnings” MCAS stories and pictures to our Facebook page…shelter staff and volunteers love seeing their prior “charges” happy in their new life. We do it for the animals!
