Cats from AWL: meet the new intakes!


Great news! HPC volunteers were able to pull 4 cats from the AWL shelter today. They are now all in HPC foster homes.

Demi (above) is a 2-year-old white and tabby female with a half-tail. We can already tell she is a sweet and affectionate cat. The people at the shelter guessed she had lost the part of her tail at a very young age.


The three kittens (about 8-weeks-old) we think are all female. There are 2 dilute calicos and 1 white and orange kitten. Their names are: Asante (thank you in Swahili), Sana (thank you very much), and Afia (health). They are recovering from a URI (upper respiratory infection) which unfortunately is very common for shelter kitties.

They will be available for adoption soon, so If you are interested in Demi or the kittens write us and let us know at ! More on these wonderful kitties to come soon.
