Kit Kit is a 3-year-old female brown, smoke and black declawed Maine coon. Gabriel is an 11-year-old male brown and cream declawed seal point Siamese.

Home at Last Pet Adoptions Inc. is an all-volunteer rescue group dedicated to saving animals, predominantly cats, facing death at local shelters. There were four adoptions Feb. 14-20.

Animals are evaluated for temperament and health. When ready for adoption, they are neutered, given age-appropriate shots, treated for fleas, wormed, tested for FeLV/FIV and microchipped. Choices may include Himalayan, Siamese, Russian blue, unusual mixes, tabby, tortie, tuxie, solid colored cats and kittens.

Snuggle up with a cat or kitten adopted during HAL's adopt-a-thon 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. today at Citrus Pet Plaza, 7231 W Grover Cleveland Blvd., Homosassa. There is a set tax-deductible donation fee for each pet; call for details. Bring empty print cartridges to donate to Cash for Critters.
