Adopt A Kitty

      Local animal shelters are overflowing with adorable adoptable cats and kittens! Debbie Woods of Bonnie L. Hays Small Animal Shelter in Hillsboro brought some beautiful kittens who will be ready for a new home by the end of this week. Joyce Briggs of The Animal Shelter Alliance of Portland explained why Portland is one of the safest large cities in the country for homeless animals and how local animal shelters support one another in their efforts to find homes for every pet they have.

      Debbie also shared tips for adding a second cat to your home:

      1. Keep your new cat in a separate room for the first week or two.
      2. Spend time with new and existing kitties, exposing them to each other's scent.
      3. Watch for friendly signs, like paw play under the door.
      4. Introduce for small segments of time.
      5. Use Feliway.
