Animal of the Week: Twinkie the Cat

Twinkie is a cream colored domestic short-haired cat at three to four months old. He was found at the Animal Shelter accompanied by a solid black cat of equal age and size who had wandered into the neighboring Street Department building. Both cats are believed to be from the same litter.

“He was dumped and they left him to fend for himself out here,” Animal Shelter Officer Barbi Blanch said. “We found him under a truck, and he’s just a sweetheart.”

The other cat is currently at a foster home. Both Twinkie and his companion show signs of house training and are healthy animals. Twinkie uses a litter box when available. Cats naturally have an imune system more able to combat heart worms than dogs. Due to the personality behaviors of cats, Twinkie will not be at the off-site adoption this Saturday November 7, 2015.

“Cats don’t like being taken to strange places because they get really nervous and scared,” Officer Blanch said. “The Shelter will be open Saturday from 10a.m. to 2p.m. as well as the off-site that we’ll be doing at Tractor Supply this weekend from 11a.m. to 4p.m.”
