AGE: Martyn is a handsome 4-year-old brown and white tabby who has a clipped left ear and an extra toe on each foot.
PERSONALITY: He was shy initially, and still prefers a calm environment, but when he senses that a gentle human has arrived in free-roaming Whiskerville, the room he shares with several other kitties, his lap-finding sensor gets turned on.
HIGHLIGHTS: More than one lucky person has sat down in the rocking chair only to find Martyn suddenly snuggled on their lap. Give this fetching boy plenty of time to get to know his new people and his new home, and you will soon find that you have a forever best friend.
AVAILABLE: At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S Pacific Hwy, Phoenix. Open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and noon to 4 p.m. weekends.
COST: Martyn’s adoption fee is only $50 and includes a free wellness visit at a local veterinarian office. Martyn is neutered.
