Meet Watcher, this week’s Daybreak Adopt-A-Pet

By James Gaddis 1:28 PM December 13, 2013

Watcher can be adopted for $62. He is already neutered. He also has his vaccinations and microchip.

ANCHORAGE – Watcher is an 8-year-old neutered male, domestic medium-hair mix cat.

He is a handsome kitty with an endearing appearance brought on by his new haircut.

Watcher was badly matted when he arrived at the Anchorage Animal Care & Control Center and had to have his fur shaved.

He is absolutely adorable with his new look, but will be even more attractive when his fur grows back.

Watcher previously lived with other cats and enjoyed their company; he ignored the children in his previous home.

Friendly and affectionate without being needy, Watcher is talkative and outgoing with a typical orange cat personality.

He will be sure to make someone a very happy pet parent.

Watcher can be adopted for $62. He is already neutered. He also has his vaccinations and microchip.

KTVA 11 Daybreak features one animal up for adoption from AACCC every Friday during the Adopt-A-Pet segment.
