SPCHS volunteer Robyn Handley helped Violet Sprague, 3, of Ilwaco, pick out a kitten to adopt on Saturday.
The South Pacific County Humane Society held a “kitten shower” on Saturday at the SPCHS no-kill shelter in Long Beach. The shower was a fun way of welcoming the kittens and to promote their adoptions into loving homes. Volunteer Jim Sherman had a very busy day entering adoption information of the prospective parents into the SPCHS database.

Keira Calhoun, 10, of Portland, picked out Nutmeg for her grandmother on Saturday.
On this shower day, all kitten adoptions were 50 percent off the usual $100 adoption fee. Sources from the shelter reported that they started the weekend out with 35 kittens, the most they’ve ever had at one time.
The shelter requested those who attended the kitty shower to donate kitten toys, kitty-size beds, litter, litter boxes, kitten chow and small fleece baby blankets.
