How Much for That Kitty in the Window? 

Wednesday, Dec 10 2008
Maybe you can remember the first time you fell for a furry friend. Maybe not. Maybe it was years ago, at Macy's. The department store has hosted homeless kittens, cats, puppies and dogs in its windows for over 20 years, and it's quite a sight to see. Each year, window-dressing professionals see to it that the streetside display areas are done up in the manner of miniature ski lodges and other such cute scenarios. The SPCA then provides adoption-ready animals, who lounge around adorably. Sometimes they make eye contact: watch out. You could easily be a goner. Adopters have to shell out the same as at the SPCA, but they get goodie bags, temporary pet health insurance, and dogs get leashes and collars.
