Humane Society of Central Illinois


Last February I came to the Humane Society of Central Illinois to visit the animals and look at the kittens. I had originally been searching for an orange kitten but when I entered the kitten room I saw a brother and sister 3 month old black and white kittens. One of the employees or volunteers encouraged me to play with them both in a viewing room so I did.

The little boy ran around like a crazy cat and I decided that he was just too rambunctious for our two adult male cats and our two male dogs (all adopted). I turned around and I couldn't find the little girl, but the door was closed so I knew she was somewhere in the viewing room. I found her sleeping in my purse and she looked up at me yawned and went back to sleep as if to say "is it time to go home yet?" I fell in love at that moment and life with Layla is interesting. She is very smart and has been taught to fetch. She is also very social with people and our other animals. And, she has a whole lot of personality and sometimes attitude for such a small cat. She only weighs about 7lbs now and I couldn't picture life with our furry family complete without her. Thank you so much HSCI!

P.S. She still likes sleeping in my purses.
