Miss Kitty Purry! Star of Good Day PA!

Miss Kitty Purry is a 5 month old spayed female kitten who loves the  adventure of life! Kitty’s favorite game is to hide, then jump out to tackle you for lots of love and attention. This purrty little girl loves everyone she meets both human and feline. Kitty is looking for a very special family to adopt her due to her having been born with dislocated hips and floating knee caps! This simply means when she is fully grown she will need at least one surgery and possibly more to ensure that she has a long healthy and pain free life. If you would like additional information about little Kitty Purry, please speak to a staff member or email sheltermanager@lebanonhumane.org.  PS – Miss Purry traveled to ABC 27 in Harrisburg to appear on Good Day PA on Monday, December 18. Our shining star Miss Purry performed purrfectly in her TV debut!
