Porky and Buddy Pet Health – ‘Pushing Kittens Out The Door’

Porky and Buddy

I am thinking about adopting a kitten, as my 18-year-old “Bumpkus” passed away last winter and there is a huge hole in my house that used to be filled with purrs (and fur). I just read that the Oswego County Humane Society is running a “Special” on kitten adoptions – you can adopt two kittens for $100 instead of the usual $200 that it would cost for the adoption fees.

But do you know what to do if you see someone else’s dog alone in a car on a hot day?
