I don’t know a single person whose bad day wasn’t instantly improved by holding an adorable kitten.

Not that we’re having a bad day… but LOOK AT THIS KITTEN.

It’s Justine. Justin is a four-month-old kitten who was brought to the Southwest Michigan SPCA by Animal Control. He’s up to date with his shots and now he’s just waiting for his new home!

As for his behavior, even while he was still in his career, his purrs echoed through the studio. Keep in mind, he’s a kitten so he’s very playful. Come prepared with lots of string cat toys, cat climbing towers, and more.

He also has the most gorgeous eyes. I tried to get a close-up, but this wriggling little worm was much more interested in exploring the studio than posing for a photo. So I did my best:

You can barely see him here, but his eyes are a gorgeous shade of yellow with green outlining his pupil.

If this clumsy boy seems like the perfect fit for your family, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • The SPCA recommends meeting with any other pets you have before adopting to make sure everyone gets along.
  • If you are in a rental property, you must provide a copy of your lease to prove that you are allowed to have animals in the house

Plus, before you go ahead with the decision to adopt, the SPCA has an amazing list of “things to know” so you can be sure you’re ready to commit. Find this list here.

Otherwise, as said above, Justin is ready to get comfortable with your family! If Justin is not for you, many other animals are looking for their new home. See all adoptable animals currently at the SW Michigan SPCA here.

And remember, saving an animal won’t change the world. But it will change the world of this animal. Even if you can’t adopt, you may be in a place where you could consider becoming a foster parent. Placement gets the animal out of the shelter, helps free up space for other animals in need, and helps the animal become more adoptable.
