The sign at the strip mall simply said “Kitten and Cat Adoption.” The sign on the door said “Open.”
I had some free time and a camera, so I stuck my head inside. I’m not looking for a cat, but I thought I could take some photos to bring attention to cats in need of adoption.
Inside The Cats Meow, I found dozens of happy, healthy cats lounging around, watched over by a volunteer named Kristin. She told me the shelter was founded a couple of years ago by Barbara Eakins, and that the 501(c)3 needs donations of money and supplies, as well as homes for cats. If you’re local to Vero Beach, they’re having a fundraiser on May 14 at Uncle Sam’s.
Here are some of their current residents, looking adorable and adoptable. The internet needs more kitty pictures!
