Robin’s Nest of Indy is an organization of volunteers that foster unwanted cats and kittens and puts them up for adoption at local pet stores. It is a great team of 23 people that want to feed and care for stray and feral cats and they work hard to ensure the cats are vaccinated and neutered and placed in loving homes.
The leader of Robin’s Nest of Indy is Marcia Ryan from Indianapolis, IN and is dedicated to the care of all cats. There are a number of volunteers that go to the pet stores and clean the cages, feed and water the cats and give them a little bit of loving from time to time. There are special people who only bottle feed some of the babies while others only foster the older cats. This is a great not-for-profit community effort that helps to attend to some of the poor cats that someone has discarded.
During the summer Southside Farmers Market at 7031 S East Street and Southport Farmers Market located at 2810 E Southport Road will be holding Adopt-a-Cat sessions so these little guys can find loving and caring homes. Check back frequently on Facebook or on the Southside Farmer Market Blog for more information and times when the adoptions will be available.
Kitties are great little mousers and are quite loving little guys. They are easily trained and don’t eat much and are almost instantly potty trained. Look at these little guys, look at their eyes and that says it all. SO CUTE!
The pictures that I have presented are cats or kittens that might be available or may not. Sometimes when pictures go up people rush to the stores and grab them so what you see may not be what you get. Besides, you want to pick a cat that best suits you and your family. Over the years, I have found that cats like to pick their owners. When they do, they are the best pets. Sometimes they might be a bit shy because they have been in a loving home and then discarded so they are reluctant to say – “Pick Me”.
Check out Petco North and Petco South for all the cats that are available to adopt. Kittens will be coming in soon as some of them are just about 4-5 weeks old. The adoption fee includes spaying or neutering and shots so if you get a kitten now and he is too young to get fixed, you bring him/her in when they have reached the proper age and the job will be done at no additional cost. What a great offer. Check with a Robin’s Nest volunteer for details.
OK Until next time. We might talk about EARTH DAY as that is coming up. See you at Petco.
