Dove was a 2-year-old petite cat who was adopted. Her new family shared her pictures on our Facebook page and also said: "Dove came home with us today! Her new name is Kenzy. She is loving her new soft pink bed and all the attention she is getting! In the picture, Kenzy is meeting her new big brother Buddy. She preferred being under the table at first, but she is now resting comfortably in front of the fireplace!"
