When I visited the Stevens-Swan Humane society last week, one cat really stood out. I noticed a cat with a lot of energy, bouncing around, climbing onto things and wiggling when held. She's Sparkles, a two year old domestic short hair kitty who loves to bask on the window sill, enjoying the warmth of the sun. Sparkles is a mommy who's happy that all four of her kittens have found their forever home, now, she is looking for hers! She gets along great with other cats also.

You can find out more about Sparkles and the other pets available when you Email the Stevens-Swan Humane Society of Oneida County. Or visit them at 5664 Horatio Street in North Utica near BJ’s, Wal Mart and Lowes.
