Pet of the Week
Wilber was rescued from a shelter in Bastrop after a long stay there, and in the short time he's spent at Austin Pets Alive! he has already left a big impression. The shelter staff absolutely loves Wilber for his infectious friendliness. It got to the point where his door now has a sign telling passers-by not to give him treats. (He is just too adorable to not be given a snack every time, so he's had to go on a bit of a diet.)
Breed: Domestic Shorthair Mix
Adult size: Medium
Age: 2 years, 2 months
Adoption donation: $75
Location: Town Lake Animal Center
Surprise fact: Whenever his back is scratched, Wilber likes to "kiss the sky."
What APA! says about Wilber:
- It's been nearly impossible for staff to walk by Wilber's cage and not want to pet him and cuddle him.
- Wilber also loves to cuddle back and love without abandon.
Why APA! says Wilber deserves your love:
- Wilber is very healthy, being heartworm and FeLV free. He couldn't be a more ideal addition to an equally loving family.
In summary: Wilber is an easy-going critter who just needs an owner who can dish out just as much love as Wilber can give. It might also help to have a petting hand that won't get tired too quickly.
