Pet of the Week - Venus the Snowshoe Cat

Venus the Snowshoe Cat

Venus is a Snowshoe, the result of cross breeding a Siamese and a bi-colored American Shorthair. Snowshoes ooze friendliness and affection, and especially love to be touched. This is not a cat that does well with being left alone for long stretches of time. The Snowshoe gets along well with most, but has a tendency to bond with one particular person in the home, and is shy with strangers. Sweet-tempered and clever, this is an intelligent breed that can be taught a variety of tricks. Venus is a female, weighs 5 pounds and is believed to be about 6 months old. Venus can be seen at Beaumont Animal Care, 1884 Pine St., Beaumont. The cat adoption fee is $90, which includes her spay, feline vaccines, rabies vaccine, wormer, and flea treatment. ID No. 31575.
