FARMINGTON – Yang is a special cat awaiting her chance to go into a special home, said Franklin County Animal Shelter staff.

She came to the shelter in the middle of a winter storm. She was dropped off on the doorstep with her sister, Ying. They were left under the eaves between the shelter and a snow bank. The police called a staff member who drove to the shelter in a storm to put the cats inside.

Ying has been placed, but Yang is still waiting for a second chance. She loves to cuddle and snuggle and loves to loll about in a warm sunbeam.

She would do well in any type of home because she adapts well to any situation. She would be an exceptional cat for a quiet home, sitting on a lap and soaking up the attention given her, or a rambunctious home, playing with children and chasing an untied shoe lace.

A winter carnival will be held on Sunday, Dec. 11, at the shelter. Santa will pose for photos with children or with pets. There will be a bake sale, Christmas wreaths and other festive merchandise.

New dogs at the shelter include a tan pit bull mix female found in Jay, tri-colored beagle male found in Wilton and a black and white border collie mix male found in Wilton.
