Another Happy Ending

Penny and Celia were adopted by Wendy and her husband and, as you will see, they are adorable little furbabies and very happy.

Wendy says, “Penny (yellow tabby), is now known as Marilyn, and Celia (calico) is now known as June-bug. They are such good friends with each other, I couldn't ask for better. My husband and I are honestly in love with these sweet fur-babies. :) Thank y'all for taking care of these sweet girls until my hubby and I could find them.


Marilyn after a long day…
