Here are our Pets of the Week
Mark is a gray tabby with white feet, unlike his brother, Marshall, who is almost a complete tabby.
Both kittens are 10-week-old males who are neutered and up-to-date on all vaccinations, with the exception of their rabies shots, as those don't start until the kittens are 12 weeks old.
“They come in, and the first thing with a new intake is they are tested for FIV and given their distempers,” said Marie Beltz, a volunteer who fosters the kittens until they're adopted.
Anyone wishing to adopt a cat from Stray Cat Blues needs to go through a relatively small application process, which includes an $85 adoption fee, and approval from the owner of the residence stating that animals are allowed on the premises. In addition to this, a waiver needs to be signed stating that any cats adopted will not be declawed.
“Declawing is mutilation,” said Beltz. “It ought to be illegal here.”
Stay Cat Blues helps place roughly 800 cats and kittens annually. The organization has multiple locations, including the PetSmart in Collegeville, Pet Supplies Plus in Souderton, and one cage in the Green Lane Veterinary Hospital.
