Kittens and kids at the Farmer’s Market.

Naomi Thomas, (6) of Burien, has feline fascination and hopes Grandma Emily Hitchens will let her take a kitty home from the C.A.R.E.S booth at the Burien Thursday Market last week. C.A.R.E.S is a non-profit formed by local residents and business owners to reduce the dangers of irresponsible pet ownership. The organization has a pet adoption program as well as sheltering lost and stray pets. A spay and neuter clinic is available including a licensing option for dog and cat owners. Online they can be found at As for Naomi, she might have to wait a bit as school is starting soon.
