Pet of the Week

Buddy up to Balthazar
Balthazar, a black domestic shorthair, is a personable cat who likes to explore and be loved. He is decked out in a fancy silver collar.

Chill with Chelsey
Chelsey, a 5- to 8-year-old tortoiseshell, is described as the pound’s “distinguished lady.” She is not past her playing years, but definitely would be more apt to sit on a lap than a kitten would.

At 2 to 3 years old, Madonna is the size of a 6-month-old cat. A black domestic shorthair, she is described by pound workers as a “little bundle of cute.”
