A tiny tuxedo kitten in Texas is ready to go home for the holidays.

Best Friends Animal Society told Fox News Digital that Ophelia is stealing people’s hearts “left and right.” 

The group mentioned the cat’s notable markings on her black-and-white fur that give the appearance of the “cutest” white mustache.

Four-month-old Ophelia is available for adoption at Best Friends Animal Society in Houston, Texas. "She loves to play with her kitty friends," the shelter told Fox News Digital.

While pets are always an exciting gift to receive during the holidays, Best Friends Animal Society is encouraging animal lovers to choose adoption.

In a press release, Best Friends Animal Society CEO Julie Castle explained that adopting instead of shopping this season can help divert money away from the “inhumane puppy mill industry that churns out millions of puppies annually.”

“Not everyone considers this, but where gifted pets come from can either help or hurt efforts to end the killing of pets in shelters,” Castle said.

“I encourage everyone to adopt rather than buy a pet from a breeder, pet store or online retailer,” she also said.

Best Friends Animal Society is a leading national animal welfare organization dedicated to ending the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters, the group says on its website. It works with shelters, rescue groups and members nationwide.
