ANCHORAGE - Please meet Nero, an adult, male, domestic shorthair mix cat. Exceptionally gentle and quiet, Nero enjoys having his head rubbed. This handsome kitty is on the shy side, but is quick to stick his head of his hiding box to rub on your hand for pets. Once he has a quiet spot to get to know you, it’s all about being in your lap, with his soft purr quick to follow. He is certain to blossom with plenty of TLC. He also enjoys his treats and will eat them out of your hand. Nero is very soft and super sweet – he has big blue eyes that will capture your heart. Nero has already made friends here at the shelter, and one of them is paying for his neuter surgery, reducing his adoption fees by $80. Nero can now be adopted for only $62, which includes his vaccinations and microchip. Contact Anchorage Animal Care and Control at 343-8118.
