Eight years ago, my daughter Jasmine asked if she could audition for the Ahwatukee Foothills “Nutcracker” performance. She was new to the world of ballet and dance, but I relented, and she was thrilled to get parts as a Baby Mouse and a Mini Bon Bon. And the next thing I knew, her Saturday soccer games now had conflicts with “The Nutcracker” practice — called “rehearsals,” I was quickly corrected. I kept hearing about how much fun Jasmine was having at these rehearsals, how many new friends she was making, and how she couldn’t wait for “Opening Night.” I didn’t pay too much attention. I just paid for the costumes, bought tickets for a performance, and occasionally picked her up after a rehearsal and raced her to her soccer game.

Zoey, a beautiful 4-month-old “tuxedo” kitten was abandoned inside a box left in front of a PetSmart. Even though she was dehydrated and exhausted from her experience, she is still very trusting of humans and extremely affectionate. She can be a bit timid at first, but quickly warms up to you. She constantly purrs and craves human attention as a lap cat or just to have you in the room with her. She loves to play with toys and take naps next to you. Zoey is good with other cats and was introduced to dogs at her previous foster home. She will need a home where she can slowly transition into her new family.
