Pet of the Week

Teesha's been told he needs to lose a few pounds, but he laughs in the face of such ridiculousness. With the extra padding around his belly, he doesn't need bedding or blankets. With his added girth he doesn't have to tell anyone who's boss because most cats will respectfully step aside. And with his healthy appetite, he knows how to enjoy life's simple pleasures. At six years of age, Teesha is a flame-point Siamese mix whose fur has sprinklings the color of cinnamon and brown sugar. He's neutered, he's calm, he's filled with self-confidence and self-assuredness. As for his few extra pounds, he carries them with grace and dignity.

If you would like to adopt a pet, call or stop by the Homer Animal Shelter on the Bypass across from the post office. The shelter is open seven days a week, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Call 235-3141, e-mail pow@homeranimals.com., or visit www.homeranimals.com.
