AGE: Stellone is a particularly handsome 3-year-old shorthair black kitty. He sounds like a tough guy, but is actually a sometimes timid, very sweet gentleman cat. And yes, his meow sounds like he’s yelling, “Adrienne.” (No, not really!)
PERSONALITY: After being surrendered to the Shelter, it took him awhile to feel comfortable. Now he resides happily in Kitty Korner with its pleasant outdoor catio, where he plays well with other cats, and loves getting attention from volunteers and visitors.
HIGHLIGHTS: Stellone is one of those softies who rolls over and presents his tummy, and then goes on to snuggle on your lap when he knows he can trust you. Give this boy some time to adjust to a new home, let him know he is safe, and you will have a purr-fectly delightful companion kitty for years to come.
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: $50, and includes a free wellness visit at a local veterinarian office. Stellone is neutered.
