This week at the Champaign County Humane Society there is no predetermined adoption fee for cats over the age of 7 years. Instead, we’ll accept a donation at whatever level the approved adopter is willing to offer. It’s all part of our Home for the Holidays adoption campaign.
We’ve got a great cast of characters eligible for this week’s adoption promotion . . . so compelling that I think we could produce our own "Real Housecats" reality show if only we had the budget. Let's meet a few of our Real Housecats:
The New York “Housewives” had a countess by marriage, but our Princess Bala is true royalty. At 11-years-old, this Persian Princess is too mature to get caught up in the petty dramas of the other housecats. Still, she never fails to disappoint her fans by looking down her little nose at the other housecats and purring out a caustic one-liner.
All the other “real housecats” are jealous of Jango because he is already a rising reality star on “Feline Rehab with Dr. Knap.” But Jango couldn’t care less about the sniping going on behind his back. The girls can say what they want -- Jango is going to enjoy livin’ the life! You’ll often find Jango lounging behind the front desk at the shelter, taking up as much space as possible.
Jango is an 8-year-old male
We’ve seen “real housewives” resign because they can’t take any more drama. If Sabbie was going to resign from being a “real housecat” it would be so she could take more naps. At ten years old, Sabbie has already seen it all and heard it all - so gossiping with the girls just doesn’t hold her interest. And pardon her if she comes off as a bit-of-a-grump. Sabbie will thrive in a home where she is the only housecat around.
Babe is the lovable “real housecat” that just loves to be loved. She thrives on the social scene and gets along with all the other cats. When Babe says she hasn't had any work done, you can believe her. Babe maintains her youthful appearance through basic pampering and self care. When not hosting a party or hanging out with the housecats, Babe’s calendar is filled with spa appointments. If you want a cat that enjoys being brushed, Babe is your Babe.

All the "Real Housecats" will gladly leave realtiy stardom behind in exchange for a real home.
More “Real Housecats” are waiting to meet you at the Champaign County Humane Society. Cats that qualify for this week's promotion have a red Christmas stocking on their cage. You can also look for cats over the age of 7 on our website, at www.cuhumane.org.
