Pet of the Week: Tank the Russian Blue Cat

Tank is a 4-year-old Russian Blue who is a little blue that he hasn’t been adopted yet. Tank was surrendered with three other cats, all of whom have been adopted, and Tank hopes that it’s his turn next.

Tank is an indoor cat only, and he enjoys the company of other cats (although he might need a little bit of an adjustment period when meeting new feline friends), as well as adults, some dogs and gentle children. He loves having a quiet spot to sleep, but quickly rolls over for belly rubs when you approach, and he can easily be coaxed out with promises of petting and a lap to nap in.
