This week's Pets of the Week are  Lenny & Squiggy, the bonded cat pair!

"Lenny and Squiggy are a cute, bonded pair of cats, and really enjoy each other's company... as well as yours! Lenny loves his catnip ball and fuzzy rattle toy. He's into giving his foster parents back and shoulder rubs, making biscuits all over their backs and resting his head on their shoulders. What a furtastic pal he'll be! Squiggy loves to chase his laser toy and be held over his foster parents shoulders like a baby and get lots of kisses. He will be an awesome fur-friend!! Squiggy still has LOTS of kitten-ness in his handsome self! As a bonded pair, they will need to be adopted together, and will fill your house with double the love. To set up a time to meet Lenny and Squiggy, call the front desk at 919-560-0640 extension 9 and they can help you."
