BOCA RATON — Olive is a special ‘Hemingway’ kitty in need of a loving home.

Also often called ‘mitten cats’, Hemingways are actually polydactyls, cats with ‘extra’ toes for extra cuteness!  Made famous by their large numbers living in Key West at Ernest Hemingway’s home, these adorable cats are purr-fect in every other way and only made more unique by their looks.

Olive has even more of a mitten-look with her ‘white mitten’ paws.  She’s a 3-year-old spayed girl who gets along well with other cats….and people!

She’s available for adoption at Tri-County Humane Society, a no-kill animal shelter located at 21287 Boca Rio Road in Boca Raton. The shelter is open for adoptions Tuesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Adoption fees for companion animals are $110 and up. Animals are heartworm-tested and up-to-date on vaccinations.

Included in the adoption fee is one year of free office visits to Regency Veterinary Clinic.

Please visit us to find a lost pet or to consider adding a shelter dog or cat to your family.  We have puppies and kittens, too!  Call (561) 482-8110 or view many of our available animals and volunteer opportunities at:  Follow us on Facebook and Twitter at ‘TriCounty Humane’.
