Pets of the week: Two sweet and shy senior cats
Learn more about these pets looking for permanent homes.
Alistair is a 9-year-old male cat who is very sweet but a little shy and nervous at first. Once he is comfortable, he does seek out attention and loves pets. Alistair is on a prescription diet that he will need to stay on for life. He is up-to-date with vaccinations, neutered, dewormed, microchipped and FIV/FLV negative. His adoption fee has been sponsored! Helping PAWS Pet Rescue, Inc., 715-513-6106, helpingpawswi.org .
Francis is a 9 pound, brown and white, domestic shorthair cat who is about 10 years old. She found herself at Animal Allies after her previous owner could no longer care for her. Francis is a shy gal, so she's looking for a home with the patience to let her warm up. In her last home, she only liked being around certain people, so she's looking for a calm and quiet home. She doesn't want to be smothered with attention and prefers to do her own thing. Animal Allies, Duluth, 218-722-5341, animalallies.net .
