No. 17. My name is Chance, and I'm about to tell you why that name fits me so well. I've had a few close calls, but thanks to a few folks who took a chance on me, I'm still here. I was found in a yard up in Pukalani unable to walk, with swollen glands and bladder trouble. It really didn't look good. But with love, kindness and a lot of tender loving care, the folks at the Maui Humane Society gave me the care and time I needed to make a full recovery. As you can see, I'm good as new and I am as playful and loving as any other kitten at the shelter. I'm hoping that all my strength and will to survive will pay off. I'll get to go home to a loving family of my own. So what do you say? Wanna take a chance on me?
