Do these lazy days of summer have you craving a little furry friend? Well today through this weekend the Town Lake Animal Shelter is having their 3rd Annual Kitty Palooza and that means adoption prices for all cats and kittens are $35.00, 2 for one adoptions for bonded pairs, and waiving fees on all cats over 5 years of age.

Kitty Palooza is a weekend of fun and adoptions, they will have music, dancing, face painting. The first 100 adoptions will get great give-a -ways, raffle tickets will be given to all those that adoption a kitty for entry into a great prize.

Here is some Fun Cat Trivia for you to get you thinking cats!

  • Both humans and cats have identical regions in the brain responsible for emotion.
  • A cat’s brain is more similar to a man’s brain than that of a dog.
  • A cat’s field of vision is about 185 degrees.
  • Ancient Egyptian family members shaved their eyebrows in mourning when the family cat died.
  • A cat can jump 5 times as high as it is tall.
  • Cat litter was “invented” in 1947 when Edward Lowe asked his neighbor to try a dried, granulated clay used to sop up grease spills in factories. (In 1990, Mr. Lowe sold his business for $200 million.)
