Pet of the Week January 28th, 2010



Tonya is a 4-year-old spayed female domestic shorthair mix (ID # 40768). The first thing you might notice about Tonya is that she is a little different from all the other cats. She came to the shelter as a stray with a badly injured tail, which had to be amputated. But that hasn’t dampened her fun-loving personality. She is spunky and lively and loves to play. She also knows how to settle down and likes to be held and cuddled. Tonya is available for adoption at the Escondido Humane Society, 3450 E. Valley Parkway. Her $110 adoption fee includes microchip, up-to-date vaccinations, spay and vet exam. For more information, call (760) 888-2247 or log on to The Escondido Humane Society Adoption Center is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.

Yes, they are cutie pies.

And they’re so new they don’t yet have names. We’ll leave that to you.

Naming a kitten is a special act, best left to the new kitten’s family of humans.
