Felicity and Sophia, June 20th Pets of the Week!

It’s a known fact, and not a mere opinion, that orange cats are special. What may not be generally known is that only around 20% of orange cats are female! So, 7-week old Felicity and 6-week-old Sophia are extra-special! Felicity loves to flirt with people and uses her playful wiles on them, while Sophia is a lap cat in waiting and adores snuggles in a blanket. Meet them both on the shelter side of the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A628410 for Felicity and ID##A628426 for Sophia.

(This rescue encouraged by the usual suspects.)
