HERE, KITTY KITTY. Humane Society president Jennifer King loves to cuddle with these cute kittens.
There is a $60 cost to adopt the animals but the fee includes services like spaying or neutering, deworming, and appropriate vaccinations.
“We have over 100 cats, (including kittens) needing adoption and we hope to get most of them adopted this month,” Jennifer King, president of the St. Charles Humane Society told the Herald-Guide.
“When people come in to adopt cats or kittens we always ask them to take two,” she said.
“Cats are pack animals which mean they prefer to have a buddy and why not give two cats a home instead of just one?”
Cats are clean animals but proper care is required by the owner.
Angie Robert, animal control specialist list these tips for cat lovers who want to adopt a cat this month.
“Make sure your cat’s litter box is cleaned daily,” Guidry said. “Always get your cat’s yearly vaccinations from the veterinarian clinic,” she continued.
“A good way to tell if your cat is not feeling well is he’ll start urinating in spots other than his litter box.
“Take him to the vet immediately, because it could be a sign that it has a bladder infection,” she said.
“Cats are claustrophobic, never keep them in a cage.”

$500 Bunge gift cards on hold until construction date set - 548 views
In order to ease the concerns of residents who live near Bunge North America in Destrehan, the grain elevator promised $500 gift cards to 100 residents if the St. Charles Parish Council approved a zoning change that would pave the way for a $50 million construction project. The council gave Bunge the OK in October, but the gift cards have yet to materialize.
