This week’s pet-of the-week is a lovely, long-haired kitty named Foxy Loxy. She is a beautiful, 3-year-old cat who came from an unfortunate home where too many cats were being housed. While they did receive enough food, they did not receive the medical care they needed, and their coats were matted and painful. All the cats have been receiving great care at the Humane Society of Huron Valley.

Foxy Loxy’s fur was so matted she received a medical groom, and that made her feel much better. When she came into the shelter Foxy was a bit unsure, and though never aggressive, she would try to hide under her cat bed. Now, however, this young lady has made a complete turn-around. She seeks attention and is affectionate.

She has a soft meow and a gentle purr and would love to be your new lap cat. She could get along with another laid back cat, but she would love to get most of your attention because until now, she was just one of many cats, and she craves more people interaction.

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 think you meant to say she "craves" attention.
