Katy is an 8 week old, female, tabby kitten. She is very tiny and sweet. Katy loves to be held and cuddled. She has another three siblings who also need homes. The West Point/Clay County Animal Shelter is at capacity with kittens, puppies and dogs. If you are interested in adopting Katy or any of the kittens, puppies and dogs, come by the shelter Tuesday – Friday 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Saturday 10 a.m. - noon, or call 524-4430.
