Pet of the Week: Bubbles the Cat

Bubbles is a three-year-old neutered white and tabby male who tricked volunteers into thinking “he” was a “she” due to his long hair and cute pink nose.

He likes to hang out in one of the little hidey holes in the cat room, but Bubbles quickly comes out for love and attention when there are visitors around.

He is very gentle and friendly, and he loves to roll over for belly rubs. His long hair requires daily brushing, since he is prone to matting. Bubbles does well with adults, other cats, gentle dogs, and even young children, if they approach and pet him gently.

The Los Alamos Animal Shelter and Friends of the Shelter would like to thank Los Alamos residents for shopping locally and adopting locally. For the month of January, any Los Alamos resident who adopts one of the animals received during 2013 will be given a chance at a raffle for a $50 gift certificate to Pet Pangea or a $50 gift certificate to Smiths.

The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 505.662.8179, has a great selection of adoptable pets – see the Petfinder website for photos here.

All adoptable pets are micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations.

Shelter Hours: Noon-6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekends.
