Bringing Your New Kitten Home

Congratulations on adopting your new kitten!!

Meadow, practically perfect in every way

Our family adopted Meadow (formerly Snowflake, thought to be female) from HSHV back in February. We had recently lost our dear sweet cat of 15 years, and really needed some joy in our home.

The key to my heart

A black cat has always been the key to my heart, and I found my key! I knew he was “the one” when I first laid eyes on him. I can’t get enough of him. He LOVES to talk when he wants attention (which is 24/7 lol!). He always has to be in the same room as me and always be around me. He is such a handsome boy and I’m glad I can say he’s mine! Thank you HSHV for providing me with my dream guy! Tammer now Armand
