Bainbridge Island City Hall will once again turn into “kitty hall.”

The city is joining with the Kitsap Humane Society to host a “kitty hall” adoption event from noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 28 in the council chamber.

During the one-day event, cats and kittens will be available for adoption for reduced adoption fees. The public is invited to play and cuddle with the cats and kittens available for adoption.

Representatives from the Kitsap Humane Society will also be available to answer questions about cat ownership and to match adopters with the right kitten to take home.

It’s the second year in a row that Bainbridge has hosted the event. There were 15 kittens adopted during last year’s “kitty hall” event, including Roo, who was adopted by City Planner Olivia Sontag.

“Over the years, we’ve adopted many of our pets from KHS, but this adoption was by far the most memorable,” Sontag said. “It was so much fun being able to enjoy the experience among friends, co-workers and community members. It’s impossible not to fall in love.”

To view all the cats (and other animals) available for adoption, visit the Kitsap Humane Society website at www.kitsap-humane.org.
