“Thousands of years ago, cats were worshipped as gods. Cats have never forgotten this.”

Welcome to 2018 and all the hope and change it brings with it!
As temperatures barely reach zero and wind chills show minus digits day after day, it seems as though Mother Nature wants all of us to work a little harder in order to appreciate the warmer months.
And, perhaps, to spend some quality time indoors with a sweet black and white male feline named after the Norse god of mischief. His name is Loki and true to his namesake, he is a little mischief-maker and jokester.
Still a kitten, even at 1-year-old, he works at wearing himself out by running, hiding and chasing cat toys. As he plays, he keeps up a running account of his movements by talking to anyone who might show an interest.
In fact, talking is his favorite thing to do. Keeping secrets isn’t really his thing, but he might be persuaded to come up with a joke or two.
Even if you’re not into Norse mythology, Loki will make a wonderful addition to any family looking to add a cat with an entertaining nature to the mix.
Congratulations to Iris, the 1-year-old female German shepherd that found her forever family right before the New Year! Here’s to all the new acquaintances you will meet and the wonderful life you deserve!
