Every day there are thousands of homeless pets in shelters in metro Atlanta who all have the same wish - a forever home. They are dreaming of waking up in a home where they are loved and cherished and are a member of the family.

Throughout the month of July Furkids in metro Atlanta is offering a two-for-one adoption special - two kittens for $125, two adult cats (one year or older) for $85 or two senior cats (eight years or older) for $45. Click here for more information on this adoption special.

All month I will be featuring Furkids kitties who want to be your furry forever friend. These adorable sweethearts want nothing more than their very own human and a warm place to sleep at night.

Today’s featured cat is Melman – a three-month old black and white male tuxedo kitten. Here is more about Melman from the Furkids’ website:

Hi, I’m Melman, and I’m one of the four Madagascar III kittens! My siblings and I were four of nine (yes, nine!) kittens that were left abandoned in a box by an animal hospital’s front door one day. I was only three weeks old at the time. Luckily, there was a Furkids’ foster that worked at the hospital, and she called Furkids for help to find a foster for the other five kittens. Then she took my siblings and me to her home where she gave us lots of warm kitten formula and attention. I am a very loving and playful kitten that can purr with the best of them. Out of my siblings, I go the craziest for catnip toys and tickle my foster mom by tumbling around with them. Just like my movie namesake, I am a real lover and can knead and give head bonks to you all day. I am searching to find the perfect place to call my forever home. Will that be with you?
