Meet Simba!

AGE: Simba, our lion king, is a handsome 10-year-old ginger boy who is looking for his own peaceable kingdom. 

PERSONALITY: It’s hard to ignore this charmer – especially when he turns his beautiful blue-ish green eyes on you, asking for attention.  If the eyes don’t do the trick, he will call out to you in a voice which he probably thinks is regal and commanding, but actually sounds like it could use a bit of WD-40.  Definitely makes you smile!

HIGHLIGHTS: Don’t pass up Simba because of his age.  He’s a youthful, personable cat, and a champion cuddler who gets along with the other kitties in Kitty Korner and is always looking for a human lap to curl up on. This king of the jungle wants a new best friend! Could it be you?

AVAILABLE: At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S Pacific Hwy, Phoenix.  Open 11am to 4 pm Tuesday through Friday, and noon to 4pm weekends.

ADOPTION FEE: Only $25, and includes a free wellness visit at a local veterinarian office.  Simba is neutered.
