Pet of the Week: Conoco the Cat

Conoco is now a friendly, playful, loveable older kitten. You would never guess that he started out as part of a feral colony trapped on Alabama Street earlier this year.

Thanks to local veterinarians who donated their time to get this colony spayed, neutered, tested and immunized, the shelter has been able to offer these cats a better life. 

Although frightened at first, Conoco and his best friend Moche went into a foster home for socialization. Then they graduated to the shelter, where they now hope for an adoption together.

The Los Alamos Animal Shelter, 226 East Road, 505.662.8179, has a great selection of adoptable pets … just great at chasing away the blues as the nights get longer, so stop by and adopt a new friend today or checkout all of the shelter’s adoptable animals on the Petfinder website:


  • Noon to 6 p.m. Monday–Friday; and
  • 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Check out the shelter’s website at, to find information about volunteering, adopting and donating and learn more about special needs animals and cats and dogs currently in foster care.

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