Looking for a cat to adopt? A sweet and friendly cat at Cameron Animal Hospital, located at 417 Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair, is in need of a family:
Looking for a sweet cat? Spotty is your girl. She gave birth to three kittens who were just as sweet and friendly as she, and have already been adopted. Now, Spotty is looking for a home of her own! You may have met her at the last adoption day. She’s super friendly, loves being pet and cuddling, and would make a great lap cat. She loves to play with toys. She’s about 2 to 3 years old and plays well with other cats.
To meet Spotty, call Cameron Animal Hospital at 973-744-2052 or email here.

As odd as it sounds, I finally made peace with my stepdog Eddie in Montclair.
A 40-pound Blue Heeler mix with dark spots on white fur, Eddie and I had been waging war for nearly ten years, ever since I stayed over at my then boyfriend Jim’s townhouse in Los Angeles and his dog peed outside the bedroom door.
The message was clear — “He’s mine.”
When I fell in love with Jim, I had braced myself for two stepkids. Never, ever did I worry about a stepdog. But in trying to find my place within my new instant family, Eddie was the one I couldn’t win over. He barked at the sight of me. He stood guard and tried to intercept me whenever I moved in Jim’s direction. He jumped between us when Jim and I tried to kiss or dance. He behaved like a jealous mistress – one capable of biting — who knew who had come first. Jim got him from a rescue place exactly four months before we started dating. I was the intruder.
When several years into our marriage we moved to New Jersey, I thought I had found my opening. I tried to leave Eddie behind.
“He’s a California dog,” I told my husband. “He’s used to perfect weather and sunbathing. He’ll be miserable on the East Coast.”
“He’s family,” Jim said.

Cory is a sweet tiger kitten who is looking for his forever home. He loves belly rubs and head scratches, and would do well in a home with other cats.
Stop by Cameron Animal Hospital this Sunday and help us find forever homes for some of our mother felines. May is “Adopt a Mommy Cat” month.
Kittens and cats will be available for viewing on Sunday, May 17 for Cat Adoption Day.

UPDATE: Makoto has been found by his owner.
A reader writes in:
Makoto is a 4 year old white and black neutered male that was lost on Sunday 4/19/15 in the area of Grenada Place and Willowdale Avenue in the South End of Montclair. He is very friendly. He is deaf and has other special needs and we suspect that he has either been let into someone’s house or gotten himself stuck in a garage or other outbuilding. He is not a street savvy cat and has never been loose before. We are especially concerned because he cannot hear oncoming traffic, dogs or other dangers. He is microchipped. If found please email Heidi: email@example.com.
