Featured Pet: Joe

JoeA054307Are you an experienced cat owner in need of a fulfilling project?  Joe is a gorgeous brown tiger Domestic Shorthair with the most beautiful coat and face this side of the Mississippi!  Appropriate that “tiger” is in his description, because he’s a very active and physical sort of house cat.  Joe is an older kitten.  He dishes out some tough love, and his new owner will be meeting that with patience, training, and an understanding of felines.  Daily playtime is a must, and thank goodness, because that is fun!  Joe seeks an adult home (teenagers OK) with space for energized cat experiences… inside only.  Come by the shelter and meet Joe, A054307.  He’s an adventure worth the loving outcome!
