GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO News)-- Pet of the Week: Mildred
She is approximately a year old, short haired, black, spayed female.

Mildred

Her bio: “Are you into mystery? Then I’m the purrfect companion for you! I have a lot of energy and you’ll never be able to guess what I’ll be up to. You might find me stalking a bug or way up high on the bookshelves, I could even be curled up in a box taking a cat nap. One thing I can tell you for certain? I love to play. I would love to have a home that will spend a lot of time playing with me several times throughout the day. It not only helps to keep me stimulated, but it helps me keep my beautiful figure. I am very conscious about keeping myself fit (gotta be in shape to get those bugs!). Because of this, I’m not the biggest eater, but don’t worry, I’ll eat when I’m hungry. I do think I need to be around people that are old enough to understand my body language. Sometimes I am not quite in the mood to be pet or snuggled and I need to have that respected. When I am ready for pets, I promise I will come and get them! So if you want to unravel a mystery, come and get me. I promise, you’ll never be bored with me around!”

Other adoptable pets:

Mayku: She is approximately 2 years old, long haired, grey tabby, spayed female.
Her bio: “Hello! It’s nice to meet you! In fact, I love to greet people whenever I can. I am what you might consider a bit of a social butterfly. Although, I am still an independent cat, which means greetings and hang outs are always on my terms. Because of this, I prefer to be around older people that understand my boundaries. I can get a little overstimulated with too much attention. I would absolutely love it if I had some cat friends to hang out with! I am a little bit of a mother cat at heart, and need someone to groom to make me happy! I also really love to stretch out, so small spaces don’t really work for me. If I can have free roam of the home that would be great! What does work for me? Treats! I love a good snack any time of day or night. So if you want a sassy, independent cat with a lot of love, I am purrfect for you. Take me home and we can snack on the sofa all night long!”

Styx: He is approximately 2 years old, maybe a husky mix, male. *Please note that anyone interested in meeting him will need to speak with their behavior counselor due to his separation anxiety.
