Spuds Sandy Geddry photo

There are many things that are guaranteed, but don’t live up to their promise. The feline caregivers at Responsible Pet Care can guarantee that you will instantly fall in love with Spuds.

Spuds is a large cat that needs to be around people. The moment he is released from his kennel he heads to his caregiver and sits in her lap. He is very content to stay there for as long as she is willing to rub her hand along his back.

Potential adopters often ask if a cat is a lap cat. It is certain that Spuds will enjoy sitting in the lap of his person as much as his person will enjoy having him there.

Responsible Pet Care of Oxford Hills is a no-kill, nonprofit shelter and adoption center for cats and dogs, and the holding area for stray dogs for 12 towns in Oxford County. The shelter is located at 9 Swallow Road in Paris.

Anyone interested in adopting a pet from RPC can visit the shelter as follows: Monday and Tuesday closed; Wednesday and Thursday noon to 4 p.m.; Friday and Saturday noon to 5 p.m.; Sunday noon to 4 p.m.

Most of the adoptable pets and the adoption application can be found online on the shelter’s website at www.responsiblepetcare.org.

Responsible Pet Care operates a thrift shop called Pawsibilities. It is located at 132 Waterford Road in Norway, and is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Donations of clean, usable household items are accepted during shop hours.
