Thanksgiving 2017 has come and gone and while people were celebrating with families and friends, starting their holiday shopping and eating lots of food, they were not the only ones who had something to celebrate.

Twelve kittens and cats and one dog found their new forever homes and families during the West Milford Animal Shelter's annual Black Cat Friday & Weekend adoption event.

The kittens adopted were: Alamo, Cosmo, Dynamo, Geronimo, Sunny, Sumo, Vanna and Vicky.

The cats were Girl Scout, Nibibi, Snickers and Stache. Not all of the kittens or cats adopted have black fur but the one dog adopted, Emma, does.

Hanukkah and Christmas are fast approaching and to help the cats, kittens and dogs who are still waiting to be the one that gets a new family, the shelter will be hosting its annual Home for the Holidays adoption event from Friday, Dec. 1 through Sunday, Dec. 31. Every adopter will go home with not just a new friend but also a WMASS t-shirt and a pet gift bag containing food, toys and treats.

One of the cats still waiting is a large tiger and white cat named Luscious.

He has a big friendly personality and is very loving. To help his chances of being adopted, he let Santa know his secret wish. And Santa put him on his nice list! Can you make Luscious' wish come true?

Come meet him and the others at th shelter on Lycosky Drive (behind recycling center), call 973-728-2859, visit facebook/The West Milford Animal Shelter or facebook/The Real Cats at WMASS.
