Kay Joubert, Director of Companion Animal Services, updated us about a special kitty currently in our care:
“Sadly, Junior's person died of cancer, and a friend brought Junior in to PAWS to find him a new home. Like a lot of new arrivals who’ve gone through such a dramatic loss and change, Junior got sick with an upper respiratory infection about a week later and went out to recuperate in foster care. It took him about six weeks to kick the infection.
Since he had some severe dental issues, our friends at VCA Sno-Wood Veterinary Hospital kindly did dental radiographs and confirmed that he needed to have his canines extracted. He’s now back with shiny, clean, healthy teeth, and is recuperating once again at a volunteer foster home. He should be ready for adoption within a week.”
In this video clip, I got a chance to play with Junior just before he went out for his dental work (you can see his oversize “fangs” that have since been removed). As you can see, he is super-affectionate and loving. He comes right up to nuzzle and purr, and will be a great lap cat for the right guardian.
When Junior returns to the shelter, he’ll be more than ready to finally go to his forever home. Will that be yours?
And while Junior is not up for adoption yet, don’t forget this is the last weekend of our August cat special. The adoption fee for cats 6 months and older is $75, and for senior cats 7 years and older it’s $35. Meet the cat of your dreams!
