Zumba is a growing trend among those looking to get fit with flair. It combines high-energy music with cardio-boosting dance moves that make it fall into the “fun” category more than the “workout” category.  Zumba increases flexibility, coordination and is easily modified for all levels of fitness, which makes it appealing to young and old alike. The best thing about Zumba? Anyone can do it.

Kameron is 4 months old and really sweet. He was found as a stray, so he’s a bit nervous at the shelter. At such a young age, the streets are no place for a kitten; adjusting to the shelter life is a little scary, but he’s doing very well. The shelter staff have been showing him how to get used to people holding him, and showing him affection. (It’s actually quite nice!) Once he opens up, he likes to play and be petted and loved on. Don’t forget to look at him when you come to the shelter.
