The West Milford Animal Shelter's volunteers are already receiving phone calls to ask if there are any kittens available for adoption. None are available - yet. If this year follows the same pattern as previous years, then there will be kittens available for adoption in approximately six weeks.

Until then, there are four young cats available. Three are just about a year old and one is a bit younger. Two of the "yearlings" are sisters named April and Mae. They were brought to the shelter with their brother because whoever owned them had moved away and just left them to fend for themselves and reproduce.

Because, like everyone else, the volunteers were hoping the temperature would rise and the sun would come out, they were named April, Mae and Juno.

They were given a physical exam, spayed and neutered and given all their inoculations and were then available for adoption. After only three days, Juno was lucky. He was adopted!

April is a beautifully marked tortoiseshell cat and Mae has distinctive tabby markings with a white bib, paws and a splash of orange on her forehead. Both are very friendly and playful. While they do not have to be adopted together, they do love each other and perhaps they will be the "lucky two" and be adopted together.

The other two young cats are Rocky, a very outgoing and lively black and white cat, and Wisp, a petite, quiet and gentle black and white cat.

For information on these and all the other cats at the shelter, call 973-72-2859 or visit www.westmilfordanimalshelter.org with links to the shelter's two facebook pages.

To help support the homeless animals at the shelter, attend the shelter's 5K on May 4, 2014 at Macopin School. All the information and registration form are on the shelter's Web site. The shelter is 100 percent volunteer - all funds directly support the shelter and the animals.

The shelter is located on Lycosky Drive (behind recycling).
