Houston is our celebrikitty that was on the news when he was rescued from a storm drain by Marietta firemen when he was just a tiny kitten. He was adopted that week by a woman who saw the story on the news, but unfortunately she had to return him several months later because he was very active and being too rough with her senior cat.
Two weeks ago, Houston went into a trial adoption as a playmate for a younger kitten. It looks like he loves his new little brother already. His mom stopped by Petsmart today to make it official. He will be much happier in this home with another young cat to romp and play with. Happy purrs Houston!!
