“A kitten is chiefly remarkable for rushing about like mad at nothing whatever, and generally stopping before it gets there.”
– Agnes Repplier, American author

Somebody found Maggie, a 6-month-old black domestic shorthair, outside of a local Petco store.
Despite her less-than-stellar beginnings, Maggie is working on coming out of her shell. She is such a sweet little kitten that loves to play with all kinds of toys if someone is willing to play with her.
She’ll take petting from anyone willing and able to give it. She’s a little too much of a kitten to stay on someone’s lap for long periods of time, but she does enjoy some downtime cuddles on her new best friend’s lap.
And if her new owner should happen to have cats at home, Maggie will make a great little sister. She already knows a lot of kitten games and is willing to learn a few adult ones as well, such as how to entice your owner to turn the water on in the sink so you can splash the entire mirror in the bathroom.
Maggie is ready, willing and able to enjoy the rest of her kitten-hood and beyond as your new BFF extraordinaire!
Congratulations to Louie, our little 3-month-old kitten that was found as a stray in Aurora.
He found his forever family last week by deploying his cuteness feature at just the right moment.
Very clever, Louie!
