pet of the week  / CLAYTON

Meet Clayton, a 3-year-old, black-and-white domestic shorthair mix. It takes him a while to trust new people, but if you’re willing to be patient, he’ll warm up to you. His favorite thing in the world is a long, luxurious nap in a comfy cat bed, and he’d like a quiet, relaxed home environment where there are lots of soft places to sit. It might also be nice to have another confident and calm kitty around who will let him snuggle up when he gets nervous. Clayton has been neutered, microchipped, tested negative for FIV/FeLV and has received all age-appropriate vaccinations. Come let him give your hand a good sniff to see if you’ll be a great fit! #154580
