Meet a 'funny girl' named Babs, our Ann Pet of the Week

By Deb Kern


Babs is available for adoption at the Humane Society of Huron Valley

Babs is a 2-year-old orange and white, short-haired "funny girl." Her entertaining ways delight the other cats living with her in one of the Humane Society of Huron Valley community cat rooms.

Bab's "Memories" of living with a few too many cats in her previous home are not as joy-filled as they could have been. She's searching for "People" that will give her attention, cheek scratches and most of all love. She would enjoy the company of another cat or cats that are laidback like she is, and if you have a soft, warm cat bed, that would delight her.

Her friend Sally, who came from the same house as Babs, was adopted a week ago and we hope someone will read this story and Babs will be adopted too.

This wonderful cat has been waiting for a new home since April, and that is really "Raining on Her Parade". Can you help her forget "The Way We Were" and open up your heart and home to her? Babs would be for "Evergreen" — whoops, no, we meant forever grateful.

In all seriousness, please come and visit Babs, and maybe you will fall in love with her. Everyone at HSHV already has.

HSHV is open daily at 11 a.m. for adoptions. All pets available for adoption are spayed/neutered, up to date on their vaccinations, medically and behaviorally evaluated, and they have a microchip ID all included in their low adoption fee. Please make adoption your first option.
