Adopt A Less Adoptable Pet Week: Itchy

Today's featured pet for Adopt A Less Adoptable Pet Week is Itchy. He's a 6 year old kitty looking for his forever home at Wayside Waifs in Kansas City. Itchy is front declawed, so he will need to be an indoor-only cat. Mom has spent some time with Itchy and says he's very sweet and loves to be petted. He gets along with other cats and with children.

His previous owners gave him up because of the lady's allergies. Can you imagine living somewhere with a family that loves you, then suddenly being in a shelter? Let's find somebody who can #BeTheChange for Itchy.

If you want more info about less-adoptable pets, take a look at what Petfinder has to say. Older pets are the ones hardest to place in homes. So many families looking to adopt a cat will pick a kitten instead of seeing the benefits to adopting a mature kitty like Itchy. It's time to stop overlooking these so-called "less-adoptable" pets and seeing them for the awesome family members they could be!
