Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We’d like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Chardonnay, a 6-month-old Calico kitten living at the Chance at Life Cat Rescue in Hackensack, New Jersey.

This sweet kitty was found living under a shed in nearby Elmwood Park with her four brothers. So far, one of her brothers has been adopted, while the rest of the siblings are still looking for loving homes. Chardonnay is one of the spirited ones in the bunch – she loves to play and when the group is done chasing kitty lasers, all of them will cuddle in a big pile (all together now, “Aww!”).

Though she can be a tad shy at first, Chardonnay will warm up if you’re willing to scratch her chin or tush, and she’s so polite she’ll even thank you with a soft purr afterward. This petite lady is up to date on vaccinations, spayed and FIV/FelV negative. So if you think she’s the friend you’ve been looking for, she’s ready to start her forever. Contact the Chance at Life Cat Rescue at 201-982-2219 or e-mail if you want to find out more about her.

Adopting a pet is an amazing experience – and a big decision! Before bringing a pet into your home, it’s important to consider your family circumstances and do your research.
