Humane Society Pet of the Week

Name: Simmons

Age: 7 1/2 years

Color/Type: Orange Domestic Shorthair

Gender: Male

Neutered: Yes

Why he is special: Simmons came to us extremely overweight. He tipped the scale at 29 pounds! We have had him on a diet and he has already dropped more than six pounds, but we are looking for a home who can help him on his path to a healthier life. He is a great cat who loves people. He is extremely affectionate and a favorite among our staff and volunteers. When you brush him he turns into a purring machine. Let’s find this big, beautiful man the forever home he deserves!

Cost: $45
