It's Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat month
, and in honor of the wonderful rescue cats out there, we're introducing you to felines-in-waiting all throughout June. Today, we'd like you to meet Elaine, a 7-year-old who arrived at the SPCA of Anne Arundel County
, Maryland, two months ago.
Sadly, when Elaine's parents divorced recently, it changed everything for her. The domestic shorthair, described as a "snuggler," was given up to the shelter and is hoping to make a connection with a new owner soon.
This kitty definitely knows how to charm people. "Elaine is a love bug and sweetheart, rolled into one," says administrative coordinator Kristen Rygg. "She loves everyone, gets along with dogs and other cats, and has lived with children."
Don't be surprised if this adorable little lady hops right into your lap – she thinks laps are the purr
-fect place to snooze. She also loves to have her ears scratched and will snuggle for hours on end in your arms.
If Elaine sounds like the affectionate friend you've been searching for, contact the shelter at 410-268-4388. To read more about her, visit the organization's website
to meet last week's adoptable pet, Everdeen.
Adopting a pet is an amazing experience – and a big decision! Before bringing a pet into your home, it's important to consider your family circumstances and do your research.
