HELENA – This week we’re featuring two cats who have previously starred as pet of the week. Asuka and Jupiter have been at the shelter for quite some time. Staff say that there hasn’t been much interest in these two because they’re both shy and tend not to get much attention in their kennels.
But since Katie Axline-Pittman, the cat program coordinator at the Lewis and Clark Humane Society, decided to put these two together, they have done a complete 180.
Katie Axline-Pittman says, “We put them in together a couple weeks ago- last week I think- and they became instant best friends. So now we’re hoping that we can find them a home, and find them a home together, since they love each other so much.”
Because Asuka and Jupiter have become such close friends, staff say that their goal is to find them a home that can accommodate both cats. And although
Axline-Pittman: Complete turnaround, and I’m so happy. So, so happy. Both of them used to kind of hide underneath their beds when people came around, didn’t really want to come out and socialize, and now they’re out all the time, snuggling with each other on the bed… it’s really exciting.
If you’re interested in adopting these two, you can visit them at the Lewis and Clark Humane Society on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 12-6 or Wednesdays and Saturdays from 12-4.
