This beautiful 4-year-old girl wears an American shorthair coat in dilute colors; the palest apricot blends with light buff that morphs into silver and gray. Her huge pastel-green eyes are outlined in cream; accents of white and a rosebud nose are but a few features of her lovely face. But her beauty is deeper than her appearance — Summer possesses a warm, friendly and loving disposition. She will be a welcome addition in a variety of good forever, loving home settings, where she will blossom into a true companion and pet. Summer is a special cat; she’s a polydactyl cat. This means that she was born with more than the usual number of toes — Ernest Hemingway’s cats were polydactyl cats.

For more photos, please visit Shelter Cats. Summer’s ID is No. 2007. Come meet her — she is available at the shelter.



This adorable, approximately 3-year-old, small terrier mix is a sweet and friendly girl. Repo is somewhat frightened of her surroundings, but she seems to enjoy attention. Cute as can be, Repo wears her shorthair brown coat to perfection. She needs owner(s) who will give her a good, loving forever home where she can become a true member of the family and a great pet.

For more details on Repo’s story, please visit Shelter Dogs. Repo’s ID is No. 1990. Come in and meet her — she’s available at the shelter.
