Cat of the week

Dear Santa, Hi, it's Winslow writing. Thought I'd get my letter in early so you make sure to get to it. As you know, I'm only about 2 years old, and all I want to do is snuggle all day long — but I have feline leukemia, so not many people want to take me home. The thing is that even though I probably won't live as long as other cats, I still really want a real home — maybe with someone who already has an FeLV+ cat or who would adopt one of my FeLV+ friends here so I'd have a buddy. I wish people knew that if they adopt me, I come with a Care for Life program where MRFRS takes care of my medical bills for life. I am so healthy right now — I don't need any medicine or anything. All I need is a home to love me. Thanks for listening. Love, Winslow the cat. P.S. I've been neutered, I'm up-to-date on shots, treated for fleas and worms, and I even have a microchip. People can come and meet me at the shelter anytime they are open! The Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society is located at 63 Elm St., Salisbury, 978-462-0760, or at Petsmart in Danvers on Route 114, 978-223-0023. The Salisbury location is open for adoptions on Tuesday through Thursday, 2 to 6 p.m., Friday, 2 to 7 p.m., and Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. The shelter is open by appointment only on Sunday and closed on Mondays. The Petsmart location has the same hours, with the addition of being open Sundays from noon to 2 p.m. For more information, log on to www.mrfrs.org.
