MCC-Maple Woods’ vet tech annual pet adoption underway

It’s that time of the semester, when the Metropolitan Community College-Maple Woods Veterinary Technology program works to find forever homes for the animals its students have been caring for during their coursework.

Natalie Short, veterinary technology lab specialist, says, “We have three amazing cats left that need homes. All of them have been spayed, neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, socialized, dewormed and have had a teeth cleaning.”

Here are the pet bios, courtesy of Short:

Chester is about a year-and-a-half old. He is very playful, sweet boy but loves cuddling in a lap too. He had an injury in his eye before he came to us, but it definitely doesn’t affect his rigorous play schedule! He can still chase toys and other kitties around here with laser accuracy!

This is Minerva. She is an eight-month-old female tabby. Minerva is a petite little girl who is a little shy, but very sweet. Big dogs or little kids are pretty scary to her, but a nice quite home is what she longs for. She had an infection in her eye as a kitten which has cause a slight deformation of her inside eyelid, this doesn’t have any effect on her vision and the ophthalmologist says she is good to live her life normally!

This is Thunder and this is the perfect picture of him because it caught him in mid meow. This one-and-half year old boy is quite the talker! He is such a cool cat, super laid back and is even learning how to walk on a harness! He would be great with kids and probably even dogs.
