His piercing blue eyes will melt your heart, and his adorable head tilts will keep you laughing all day long.

Brady would love a family who will take him on long walks and teach him fun new tricks. He’s a smart boy who picks up on new things quickly and would do well in a training class! Do you have the time and desire to teach this young pup some new tricks? If so, come meet Brady today! Brady is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Come visit him today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. Learn about all our adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355.

Meet Cruz – a.k.a. “Sleepy Eyes.” Cruz is a six-year-old brown and white tabby, a true green-eyed soul cat deserving of a permanent home. He was found as a stray before transferring to the Kentucky Humane Society from another shelter. Somehow through it all, Cruz has retained his gentle spirit. Cruz’s future was uncertain after being diagnosed FIV+, but he can live a healthy life. He just shouldn’t live with other cats unless they are also FIV+. Cruz would love an easy going human who understands this and his subtle gestures, like purring for hugs, or staying in close proximity to affirm his affection and love. The only thing Cruz seems to love more than attention is treats. He gets so excited when he sees the treat bag that he’ll stick his entire head in it! Cruz is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. Will you give this big-headed sweetheart a second chance at life? Come visit Cruz today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive in Louisville. Learn about all our adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355.

Gypsy Jazz is a genre that Belgium guitarist Django Reinhardt (1910-1953) was best known for. There’s an intense local interest here and some Louisville musicians put together what’s called The Django Jamboree, now in its 5th year. Organizer Ben Andrews brought a few of the musicians by including guitarist Adrien Moignard from Paris. His playing blew my mind. Truly incredible. Enjoy!
