Pets of the week

LeState is a 1-year-old, black and white domestic shorthair. He has been neutered and all vaccinations are current. LeState was rescued from Animal Control. He is a gorgeous cat, sporting unusual markings. He is a friendly, people-oriented cat. Since being at the Clayton County Humane Society shelter, he has shown a distinct desire to dominate the other cats, often resorting to physical force to achieve this goal. For this reason, the Humane Society suggests that LeState be an "only cat." For adoption information call the Humane Society at (770) 471-9436.
