Choco Shellie is a very loving, playful and sweet 4-month-old Torti kitten who has a special look. She is a Torti but has an entire light brown leg, giving her a sassy attitude. She likes to be held, cuddled and loves head scrunches. She loves to play with toys and gets along with other cats after a slow transition. She is very adaptable to new situations and would make a great companion to anyone who can give her a second chance at a new life. If interested in Choco, contact Lost Our Home Pet Foundation at (480) 540-9322 to arrange a meet-and-greet at the Tempe PetSmart, 1140 W. Elliot Road, in The Groves near Priest Road. See her and other adoptable cats and dogs with Lost Our Home Pet Foundation at www.LostOurHome.org. All cats are litter box trained, spayed/neutered, tested for FELV/FIV, current on shots, and 24PetWatch microchipped.
May 24, 2013 marked my last day of work for the 2012-2013 school year. As soon as I received notification that my final paycheck was available, I literally “threw up the deuces,” hugged my colleagues, and “eased on down the road.” I was determined to have a carefree summer — one devoid of daily commentaries regarding instructional strategies and the effectiveness of Common Core.
