Kittens are generally the first to be adopted from Spokane shelters. Generally, because you will have more time with them and they carry little to no baggage.

Some remaining string, even a shoe lace will do. All you need is some feathers or better a stuffed toy. Tie this to one end of the string and place it in front of the cat.
