Pets of the Month at the Delta Animal Shelter are: Heidi and Pinky
ESCANABA, Mich. (WJMN) – The first animal being highlighted for January’s Pets of the Month is Heidi.
Heidi is a one and half-year-old domestic shorthair spayed female cat. She may seem shy at first, but once she warms up to you she’s very lovable and sweet.
“She came up to our shelter from a shelter downstate over the summer,” said Vonnie Bruce, adoption specialist for the Delta Animal Shelter. “They were just really overpopulated and kind of getting to the point of maybe starting to have to euthanize some of their cat residents. So, we took a large transfer up of them and she is one of the last ones left. You know, when she first got here she was a little nervous so she hid and I think just people didn’t get to see her. But, she’s come out of her shell and she has this little crank in her tail which gives her a little character.”
Pinky is a domestic longhair spayed female cat that is 12 and a half years old. She enjoys playing and being touched.
"[Pinky] has a terrible backstory; she was brought in with two other cats." Unfortunately, their owner died, and they were no longer allowed to live where they were. He'd had them for most of their lives. So they were first apprehensive about being here, but they're extremely loving kittens. As a result, she's lived with other cats, children, and dogs. She's a little reserved at first, but she quickly adjusts. "She's a wonderful elderly lady," Bruce remarked, describing her as "extremely nice and loving."
Pinky's adoption application may be seen here. The adoption payments for both Heidi and Pinky have been covered.
