Meet Rey!

When this tiny little kitten approached her future human mama squeaking, that was it. Her human-to-be instantly felt that this shelter kitty was meant to join her family. 

Rey must have felt it too, she hasn’t stopped smiling since she found her forever home!


“I wasn’t looking for a kitten by any means but just had a hunch to stop by the shelter on my way home from work and found this little lady and was immediately smitten with her!” explained Jenni, her human mama.


They decided to call her Rey after the new Star Wars character and say that she’s their little Rey of sunshine.

“So I brought her home and it’s been perfect ever since. She’s so so cuddly and playful and her big brother and sister just dote on her and are constantly trying to groom her and play with her.”
