Pet of the Week: Frankie the kitten

CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – In this edition of Pet of the Week, we were introduced to Frankie, a 6-month-old Domestic Longhair Mix black kitten. Lee Chambers, Manager of Marketing and Communication at Dakin Humane Society, told us all about Frankie and other events going on at Dakin.


Meet Friendly Frankie! This sweet-natured boy was found in a neighborhood in Springfield as a stray, and a kind person brought him to Dakin in Springfield. Frankie is the ambassador of his colony room and is often the first cat to greet people who come in to say hi. He loves to be cuddled like a baby, and is bound to be a welcome addition to any family.
