She's just arrived into foster care. Pumpkin is about 2 months old and has spent her young life with other cats and dogs so she should fit in with a household with other pets. She's neutered and micro chipped and ready to go.

If you're planning on giving a cat or dog for a Christmas gift, you're advised to talk with the Steele County Humane Society first. Remember you won't be the one living with the pet. Let your recipient come out and select one that's most suitable for their situation.

Check out the other cats and dogs looking for home at the Steele County Humane Society web site.

The winter has been quite mild so far but long range projections indicate colder temperatures with lows in the single digits by the weekend before Christmas. Even though it's winter, your pet still drinks an amazing amount of water. Keep an eye on it.
