Berkeley East Bay Humane Society

Meet Cher -- you'll be hard pressed to find a cuter kitten. This 2-month-old is always happy, playful and people-oriented. She'll be thrilled to go to a loving home where she'll get lots of play time and cuddles. Cher is a spunky little kitty who wouldn't mind being an only kitten, but she'd be equally pleased to have a feline friend. If you want to meet Cher, stop by the Berkeley East Bay Humane Society at 2700 Ninth St. in Berkeley. Adoption hours are from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Details: Send an email to cats@berkeleyhumane.org or call 510-845-3633, ext. 14.
