We took in 48 more cats/kittens today and are still over capacity with cats/kittens at BARC.  The kittens below were going to be PTS for lack of space and not old enough to be fixed yet.  All are very cute and appear healthy only one has a minor eye irritation to eye maybe from a scratch. I have them in my office and can hold them Wednesday.  If interested please contact by 9am Thursday 06-04-15.
