Alhambra Source partnered with the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society for a weekly column, "Pet of the Week." Every Thursday, we'll introduce you to a new animal looking for a home. This week's pet is Astaire, a domestic medium hair mix. Read more about Astaire below!
Breed: Domestic medium hair mix
Age: 9 months
Weight: 4 pounds
Fur: Black and white
Astaire has a soft silky black and white coat that gives him a striking appearance.
Astaire came to the shelter with Ginger, but when Ginger was adopted, Astaire was left behind looking for a chance to find a new dancing partner in a purrever home of his own. This handsome boy is even dressed in his Tuxedo black and white, ready to hit the dance floor. He is a born entertainer. If you sit next to him and happen to be wearing shoes with laces, he will show you how quickly he can untie them. When the laser light hits the floor, he really shows his moves by chasing it around. When the party is over, he is happy to settle into a lap to be cuddled.
He is very fit, agile and athletic. He is a friendly, sweet, and affectionate teen cat. Astaire has a simple and elegant appearance that does not require a lot of grooming. He will be an ideal family pet. The Domestic Shorthair can even be a child's first pet because they are known to be friendly with both adults and children. He would also be a great companion for someone living alone, who would love a pet that will follow them around and will snuggle with them on the couch.
This playful boy has a lifetime of love and affection to share and would be a great addition to a lucky home looking for a new family member for the holidays!
