Some locals are adding a new member to their family.
The Animal Shelter in Muskingum County hosted it's first ever Super Cat Adoption Day. All kittens and cats were available to purchase for only $10. The shelter was hoping the discount would entice families to step forward to adopt a pet.
"They have a good deal today and we figured if we get one we might even get two, that way it helps the shelter out and the kitties out," said David Fereriks.
"To help a little kitty in need, or a cat, so it's really great to help save a life," said Lisa Ehrnfield.
The shelter houses nearly 180 cats, all of which have been tested for feline diseases, vaccinated, and spayed and neutered.
"They're pretty self sufficient, they don't need a whole lot of attention, you can give it to them or not sometimes they'll take it, and I just think they're nice to have around," said Ciny Fereriks.
Cats were also available for adoption at the PetSmart Adoption Center. The price for cats will return back to $50.00 starting tomorrow.
