The Tiny Tigers cat lounge, operated by the Joplin Humane Society at Northpark Mall, will extend its hours of operations through this weekend (Aug. 4). The lounge is open from noon to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday; admission is a $5 donation.

Shelter officials said last week that they have "no end to kitten season in sight," and that hundreds of cats and kittens are still available for adoption for a $10 fee.
