Meet a wonderfully mellow man named Anderson - the pet of the week

By Deb Kern


Anderson is available for adoption at the Humane Society of Huron Valley

Are you a cat person looking for a wonderful companion? Anderson could be the perfect cat for you and he is available for adoption at the Anderson is available for adoption at the Humane Society of Huron Valley.

Anderson is an 11-year-old feline whose owner could no longer take care of him. In all honesty he is not hard to love or care for, in our opinion. He is gentle, affectionate and looking for a home where he can be appreciated for his quiet nature. Anderson is more mellow than mischievous but is can be very active when he feels comfortable. He is also a very handsome cat with buff-colored, medium-length fur.

Adopting a senior kitty like Anderson means you win big karma points, plus you will be getting a lovely cat who would love nothing more than to take power cat naps, cuddle with you, and occasionally play with a feather or string toy. We find that many people develop a fondness for older cats and once they’ve adopted one, they understand what amazing companions they make. If you are reading this and understand what we are talking about we hope you will come and visit Anderson.

HSHV is open daily at 11 a.m. for adoptions. All pets available for adoption are spayed/neutered, up to date on their vaccinations, medically and behaviorally evaluated, and they have a microchip ID all included in their low adoption fee. Please make adoption your first option.

I can testify to the fact that adopting a senior cat has been a wonderful experience. If we didn't already have one middle-aged cat and one geriatric one, we'd snap Anderson up. He looks like a total sweetie.
