Chihuahua, shy kitty looking for forever homes


Age: Approximately 18 months

Breed: Chihuahua

Sex: Male

Description: Nigel has had several homes in his short life, which has made him somewhat fearful and apprehensive. He needs an owner with breed experience. His foster mom says that he is pretty much over them, but another bad experience could set him back. Nigel does well with most other dogs, likes to snuggle and appears to be house trained. He will need a home with no children younger than 13.


Age: Approximately 11

Breed: Domestic short-haired

Sex: Male

Description: Artemis is a little bit of a shy guy at first but warms up very quickly. He’ll win your heart with his sweet face and playfully sweet nature. He first came to FOPAS Jan. 14, 2008. He was adopted as a kitten but returned due to a divorce. He was adopted again and recently returned due to not liking the other cats in the house. He would be best in a quiet home to call his own. Please stop by and visit with this kitty and the other cats at the shelter between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday or by appointment.

Adoption information: Friends of Parkville Animal Shelter at 1356 N. Missouri 9 is run by volunteers, so call 816-587-0918 to set an appointment, send email to friendsofparkville@hotmail.com, or go to www.parkvilleshelter.com.
