CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Cleveland Animal Protective League has teamed up with Cleveland 19's Chief Meteorologist Jason Nicholas to find a home for one special dog or cat every Tuesday.

Watch the segment in the 4 p.m. show every Tuesday on Cleveland 19 News and like the Cleveland 19 News Facebook page for live videos with the pet.

Today, two kittens, Master of the Universe (female) and Master of the Galaxy (male) are visiting the Cleveland 19 News studio.

They are 3 months old and they just returned from a foster home where they were loved and spoiled. They are so well socialized, they purr as soon as you touch them.

They first came to the Cleveland APL when they were only 1 month old and they were sick.

"But that's the beauty of our foster program," the APL said. "We have wonderful volunteers who take animals in need of care into their homes until they're ready for adoption. We provide the medication, they provide the comfy house and love (and they get lots of snuggles)."

Poses and Paws – Saturday, July 15, 2017 – 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

As part of Q104's Pledge for Pets initiative, they will be hosting a Poses & Paws Yoga/Pilates Class, sponsored by CatSpot Litter, in two sessions to benefit the Cleveland APL at Market Square in Crocker Park. Poses & Paws gives animal lovers the opportunity to have an up-close meeting with many of the friendly adoptable cats OR an opportunity to experience exercising with your dog:

The first session will be a kitty session (Doors Open at 8 a.m., Class begins at 9 a.m. – 10 a.m.) as animal lovers of all ages participate in a yoga class, while adoptable cats from the Cleveland APL roam around the room.

The 2nd session will be a dog session (Doors Open at 11 a.m., Class begins at 11:30 a.m.)  as animal lovers of all ages participate in a Pilates class and bring their own dog to join them! Cleveland APL adoptable dogs and cats will be on-site to find a forever home.

Did you know dog droppings can impact our groundwater, streams, and lake? When it rains, bacteria from doggie doo can soak into groundwater, or be carried by rainwater to storm sewers which carry the flow to nearby streams. In both cases, the water is not treated at a wastewater treatment plant, and that's not good for the environment.
