(HAVARE) – With the holidays approaching and people looking for gift ideas, we sat down with Peter Faber Speel, Animal Control Officer for the City of Havre, to find out what animals are popular to get in Havre.

“Lately it’s been cats, I’m surprised that we have both puppies and kittens here at the shelter along with adult cats and dogs but for the holidays it seems that kittens are the most popular. “

We also ask whether the popularity of cats is due to tenant animal policies.

“I think that’s a problem. I don’t want to say that cats are easy to care for, but they adapt a little better to small spaces, apartments, things like that. A lot of landlords have one animal. A small animal or cat may fare better.
