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 June Furkids in metro Atlanta is offering an adoption special - $9 for any cat nine months old or older. 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 pet is Sharona - a four and a half year old male domestic short hairkitty. Here is her description from a recent posting on the Furkids’ Facebook page:

‘Oh my little pretty one, pretty one. When you gonna give me some time Sharona.’ Sharona is a pretty tabbico kitty who lives up to these lyrics of the song of the same name by The Knack. She has nothing but time and is waiting for her purrrfect family to find her and ADOPT HER so she can spend lots of time giving kitty love and purrs. She is a sweet girl who is ready to find her permanent NEW HOME. Look into her lovely eyes and you will want to sing, ‘My my my my Sharona’ every day, so apply to meet Sharona and make her the happiest kitty in the world. She will sing her kitty version of her song to you!

Today is the LAST DAY of the $9 adoption special - only $9 for cat adoptions for all cats nine months or older until June 30. This super low price includes their spay/neuter surgery, microchip, rabies shot, other vaccines, deworming and combo test. If you apply today you can get this special rate even if the adoption isn’t finalized for a few days.
