Meet Opie, a very handsome boy. Opie is a silver tabby/Maine Coon mix. His medium coat is as soft as silk and his strong tabby markings enhance his exquisite face. Opie is seven months old and has a curious and playful side. He is smart, extremely affectionate and he purrs like crazy when held and cuddled. His very sweet and friendly nature make him the purr-fect kitty for any family. Opie is available through Saturday.

Say hi to Annie, a 5-month-old, female, Jack Russell Terrier-mix. Her short hair, low-maintenance coat is white with black markings and a sprinkling of black dots. Annie is full of personality plus she is smart, friendly, and a real people pleaser. Annie is available through Saturday.
