Pet of the Week: Kita The Cat

Kita is a young spayed female black cat. Originally a bit shy and retiring, she now approaches visitors for gentle pets.

She gets along with the other shelter cats and is good with adults and gentle children. Kita would like an indoor home.

The shelter is open noon to 3 p.m. Thanksgiving Day from, so come meet Kita and the other shelter animals. Starting on Black Friday, the Shelter is offering a special sale on black animals.

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. For information about volunteering, adopting and donating and learning more about special needs animals and cats and dogs in foster care, visit

All adoptable pets are micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and have up-to-date on vaccinations. Shelter hours are noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 3 p.m. Sundays.
