"Little Stinker" ...His name says it all. This little kitten will give you the run for your money. He is a sweet little guy once he slows down. Fully vetted and ready to go. 3-4 months. Contact Sue at 812 820 1680 or

When Princess first came to us she didn't act like she had ever been on a leash and was scared to death of it! She is much more comfortable now on leash. She likes to play with other dogs and since she is still a 10 to 12 month old puppy, she has a lot of energy! What a pretty girl!!!! Contact
