Pet of the Week: Kit – Deb Kern, Humane Society of Huron Valley , along with Dean Erskine – Our Pet of the Week is Kit, a twelve-year-old kitty on the search for her forever family. She would do best in a quieter home where her new family can give her the time she needs to get used to her new surroundings.
