Luna, Leo and Hobbes are the featured pets of the week at Monroe County Animal Shelter.
Luna is a beautiful 2-year-old, gray, tabby, domestic short-haired cat. She came to the shelter from a loving family whose landlord will not accept cats. Luna is a sweet, gentle and calm. She is vetted, her bags are packed and she’s ready to go home.
Leo is a handsome 2-year-old, gray, tabby, domestic short-haired cat. The shelter doesn’t know Leo’s history but he is calm and will let you pet him. He is a bit of an introvert and does not like to be startled or grabbed. He would most likely be happiest in a home with adults and where he can choose the level of interaction.
Hobbes is a 2-year-old, neutered, orange, tabby, domestic short-haired cat. He can be feisty, quick and a touch grumpy. He is friendly and appreciates all that humans offer but can get aggravated if he receives what he views as too much attention. He has demonstrated perfect litter box manners while at the shelter. Hobbes can be very sweet but the shelter recommends no young children.
