Fur Ball 2014

October 15, 2014

We held our annual Fur Ball on Saturday, October 11 at the ICC in Beverly. We had a nice turnout, delicious food (provided by Super Sub and our volunteers), a great band (“The Sellouts”), plus we had some interesting and attractive raffle items provided by local merchants and friends (too many to list here). We would like to thank everyone who helped in any way to make the event a success. We also want to express our appreciation to Mayor Michael Cahill, State Representative Jerry Parisella, State Senator Joan Lovely, and candidate for State Representative Rick Marciano for taking time out of their busy schedules to attend. Money raised at the Fur Ball will help us continue our work rescuing and finding good homes for precious animals in need. Thank you, one and all!

BONNIE, the Kitten

October 3, 2014

BONNIE is a brown and tan female kitten—4+ months old who is ready to a meet her new family. She enjoys being carried around as she gets to view her world from greater heights and is a “purring machine” on a wam lap.

Like any kitten, Bonnie has a good appetite, uses a litter box, likes to chase and play with toys, and may nibble on an available finger for fun. She has her limitations as her rear legs limit her mobility at times. Although Bonnie walks at a slower pace, she likes being with people and kitties who accept her limitations.

Bonnie has ventured out in the yard with supervision where she enjoys exploring the patio, plants, or sitting in the grass on a warm summer or fall day. The kitten needs extra care from a loving person or family where she can reward the kindness with her love, trust, and zest for life. She has had the required feline tests (negative), all of her shots, and is quite healthy.

If interested to learn more about Bonnie, contact Heidi Roberts at heidiroberts@comcast.net or call (978) 927-4157.

Update: NICKY and NICOLE have been adopted, but NINA is still available! NINA is the white kitten with a black spot under her left eye.

They are NICKY (a tiger male with white paws), NINA (a white female kitten with black spots and a black spot under her left eye), and NICOLE (a white female kitten with black/tiger patches on back with white face). The kittens are 3 months old. Have had the required distemper shots and tested negative on Feline leukemia/AIDS test. They would do well as a pair, with another cat, or in a home that will love them and give them attention to play or be nearby. If interested, fill out an adoption application from Friends of Beverly Animals and contact Cheryl at cmezack@aol.com, (978) 578-0588.
