Vote for Your Favorite Cat in the 2012 Independent Cat Society Sweetheart Contest


It's time again for the cats of the Independent Cat Society to strut their stuff in order to win the coveted title of 2012 ICS Sweetheart of the Year. This year we have 10 wonderful cats competing for this title and they are all sweethearts in their own right. Let me introduce you to this wonderful 10.



Little Chaka is a petite female tortoiseshell who is about 2 years old and so very sweet. She loves to play with and chase her tabby sister, Reesie. Her markings are really beautiful and she not only would make a wonderful "Sweetheart of the Year", but she and her sister would also make a wonderful addition to some lucky family.


Fireball is a young fellow. He is really sweet but also kind of shy which sometimes makes him the target for the bullies. This sweet but spicy guy is young and playful and would love to leave our shelter and have a home of his very own. Vote for Fireball for Sweetheart of the Year and it will help give him hope for a home to call his own.


Gizzy is a ball of energy with a winning personality to boot. This large boy is sweet and loveable and really loves attention. Vote him in as Sweetheart of the Year and he will reward you will tons of love and affection. Give him a home of his own and you will be his 'special' person furrever!


Kiki is an elegant black beauty who is cute and perky and just all around adorable. This wonderful girl has been searching for a home of her own for some time and if she is lucky enough to win the coveted title of "Sweetheart of the Year" maybe it will also help her to find that home of her own.


Lil Girl is a little sweetie that is quiet and loveable with a purr to win your heart. She many times has been one of the 'almost selected' only to end up being passed up for someone else. She wonders if it will ever be her turn to win this coveted prize. Vote Lil Girl the Sweetheart of the Year and maybe her luck will change and this will be her year to find her own family to love.
