Pet of the Week

The beautiful tabby we have named Miracle has a very unusual story that enabled her to find help with the Paez family for herself and her unborn kitten family of three (mama and kitten Hope pictured).

After leaving a birthday party late at night, the Paezes walked several blocks to their parked car and were followed by a skinny pregnant cat, appearing to be distressed and crying out loud.

As the Paez family entered their vehicle, the pregnant mama cat jumped in, too! Mrs. Paez put the cat out of the car and the family jumped inside, prepared to briskly leave.

Surprisingly, the pregnant cat leaped and pressed her body on the closed window of the car as if to beg to be let in. Mrs. Paez says her heart just broke down, and she opened the door and the cat jumped back in.

The determined pregnant cat arrived home with the Paez family and within a week gave birth to three kittens: Hope, a silver Bengal tabby with white; Regent, a spotted Bengal tabby; and Raleigh, a spotted Bengal tabby with white.

Qualify to adopt with an application and consider adopting pairs. We offer a "Mom and Baby Special" with the mama cat being half off. A four-month payment plan also makes adopting pairs affordable.
