It was love at first sight when we first saw Mr. Purrfect at the Coon Rapids Animal Humane Society. Alone in his kennel, he looked sad and was very timid. But the minute we brought him home, we think he knew he would be loved and get lots of affection. Although he has a birth defect (no front teeth), we started him on premium soft kitten food and his weight and size are normal and healthy. We renamed him Willy and he's quickly become the most energetic, playful member of our family! His laid back personality made him a perfect playmate for our other cat and he thrives on cuddling and being hugged.

He loves to spend the day watching the birds, rabbits and squirrels in our back yard. At night, his favorite perch is a ground level window where rabbits come to visit. We're so lucky to have found him, he has brought so much joy into our home it's unbelievable! My wife Sue and I highly recommend Animal Humane Society adoption to anyone looking to bring a pet into their home. The feeling of goodness you get from rescuing a dog or cat is priceless, and the reward is pure joy!
