The Kat Kountry 105 Kountry Kat of the Week is Izzy. She's about 2 months old. Someone could learn a lesson from Izzy. Her foster mom got Izzy to stand up for this picture by playing the National Anthem. Good kitty. She's litter box trained and loves to sit in a lap and purr away. Izzy has been spayed and micro chipped.

Besides a number of cats, you'll quite a few more dogs than usual that are seeking good homes. A number of them were rescued from Texas after the hurricane. Check them out at the Steele County Humane Society web page.

Colder weather is expected early next week so be sure your pet is sheltered. The Humane Society advises those who are considering the giving of a pet for a Christmas present to talk with them first. They can make arrangements for you to take the recipient out to meet the prospective new addition to their household. Don't just adopt a cat or dog and then give it to someone. Let them decide what fits best for their situation.
