The Kat Kountry 105 Kountry Kat of the Week is Stripe. He's about a year old and just went into a foster home earlier this month. Stripe likes to snoop around and climb his cat tree and play with his catnip socks. He's litter box trained and his regular adoption fee of $100 is cut in half to $50 if adopted by the end of the year. Stripe has been vet-checked vaccinated, dewormed and neutered.

Check out the other cats and dogs looking for good homes at the Steele County Humane Society website.
