So, this weekend, we went to Fulton County Animal Control Center, or also known as Fulton County Pet Services.
This place has approximately 400 animals in need of a home. You definitely get a great selection, and it's very sad seeing all the little animals vying for you attention. Bebe came from the Atlanta Humane Society, and they didn't nearly have such a big selection. Pretty much all the kittens at Humane were spayed/neutered already, because most are pretty much guaranteed a home. It was weird. The humane society had lots of people coming in and out. But the control center had very few people, and many many adorable pets. If you're looking for a small kitten, or a little dog, you'd have better luck at the control center too. Plus, the humane society charged over 100 for Bebe. But, the control center, complete with microchip, spaying/neutering, shots, free bag of food, deworming, etc was for $65!!! That is cheap! I takes a lot of loving souls to even make that possible.
Bebe is an extremely needy cat. She's now 1 year and 3 months old, and she still loves to constantly play and be paid attention to. If you are not dangling a feather toy, or holding her and nuzzling her cheek, she is meowing constantly. So, we got her a little brother!
His name is going to be MaoMao, which means cat cat in Mandarin. He will be coming home either on Tuesday or Wednesday after he gets neutered. He is so tiny, and super sweet. When he got our attention, he started climbing the cage door and mewing constantly. And as soon as I took him in my hand, he was purring like a little motorboat. And he was nuzzling Travis instantly.
I hope he's ok, at least as much as he can be with the neutering process.
It was a heartbreaking experience. There is no way that a person can't walk out of that place with at least one kitten or puppy. It's sad that so many defenseless, sweet, and loving creatures are put to sleep each day.
I will be posting pics as soon as the little fellow comes home.
