This message comes from Alice B., who recently adopted Romeo. Here’s what she says:

“To All the Staff and Volunteers at King County Animal shelter in Kent where I adopted Romeo my new kitten yesterday….THANK YOU from me and Romeo. He did very well on his ride home and enjoyed all of the attention he received when we made a side trip into Pet Smart to pick up a few supplies. I am 53 and have owned 9 cats throughout my life, each and every one has been well loved and a true member of the family. So I think I’m in a position to say it’s obvious that Romeo was receiving excellent care at your facility and was also being given love and attention.
