Cat of the Week: Anson

Anson came to us when he was six weeks old. He and his sister, Orangina, were both very sick feral kittens. For awhile we thought both Anson and Orangina would lose their eyesight. The good news is they didn't, and were easily socialized into loving and playful pets!

Anson is full of energy and love. He loves spending time with people. He also gets along well with other cats.  Anson has big double paws that you can see in the photo above.

Orangina was adopted this weekend, but Anson is still looking for his "furever home." To meet Anson, please visit us during our adoption hours, 11am - 3pm every Saturday. We are located at 2037 Foxon Road in North Branford. For more information on the adoption process and fees, please visit our website here.
