Adoption Spotlight

 

KIT

Who could resist a face like Kit’s? This handsome two-year old is friendly and social with the independent streak that makes cats so special.  He has a heart murmur that doesn’t impact his lifestyle, but he needs a family to keep that monitored. Kit hopes for an easy going home as the only kitty. Kit can be adopted at a fee you name through Sunday, February 25th. (Brandywine Valley SPCA, 600 South Street, New Castle, DE 302-516-1000, www.bvspca.org)
