No strangers to Furry Friends, Sam and Katelyn adopted their first cat from us, now an easygoing and relaxed male who’s presently nine years old.

Then came Opal, an outgoing and independent five-month-old female tabby! Meow about the most purr-ecious pair of pussycat polar opposites.  Eager to add a feline companion to their household, the couple was thrilled when the two kitties bonded within weeks of their initial introduction. Happily, and not surprisingly, they are now the best of “furry friends.”

Supremely sweet, sublimely social, and appealingly affectionate, Opal especially enjoys rolling over for the tummy rubs she adores. Athletic, agile, and always up for adventure, she also adores playing and pouncing, running and roaring – as only a tiny kitty can roar.

According to a most appreciative Sam, Furry Friends have provided their family with the best adoption experience they have ever had. TWICE!
