Pet of the Week: Owl the Cat

Owl is a two-year-old female calico that is very bonded to her friend Sarabi, who just left on a trial adoption. Owl hopes she is next! She definitely enjoys playtime more than cuddle time, and she’ll be your best friend if you have a toy for her to play with.

She does well with adults, older children, and she would absolutely love a buddy to play with and keep her company. Owl has been trained to use a scratching post rather than furniture, so be sure to provide some scratching posts for her.

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.
