6-month-old cat named Saturn first pet adopted from MAS this year
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Saturn the cat has a new home for the new year.
The 6-month-old female black cat was the first pet to be adopted from Memphis Animals Services in 2017.
She had been at the shelter for almost a month after her owner gave her up, according to MAS.
Mary and Grace Day and Dan Daniel adopted her Monday.
“We knew we wanted a kitty, and Grace really wanted to adopt,” Mary Day said.
Saturn will be joining the family and their other pets — three dogs and a chincilla — in two to three days, once she is spayed.
MAS encourages more Memphians to consider adopting a cat or dog. Adoption fees, which include spaying or neutering, microchipping, vaccinations, a custom ID tag and a collar or leash, are $70 for cats and $75 for dogs.
