Candy is a sweet, two-year-old cat up for adoption at the Erath County Humane Society and this week’s featured pet.

“She came in to us the first of May with two kittens,” said ECHS Executive Director Diane McCoy. “During her time with us she has nursed six orphans in addition to her own. It’s time for her break.”

McCoy said she will make a wonderful pet.

“She needs to be the special lady now with no more mom duties,” McCoy said.

McCoy said the ECHS has so many loving kittens in need of homes.

“During the month of July we will adopt out kittens under the age of one for just $10,” McCoy said. “That’s years of love and companionship for less than the price of a meal.”
