Pets of the Week

Hemmi is a one and a half year old domestic shorthair orange tabby. He has been neutered and all vaccinations are current. Hemmi is a polydactyl (has extra toes), and it is believed that polydactyl cats bring good luck to the homes in which they live. He is extremely playful, and very loving and affectionate with people. However, he has an extreme dislike for other cats, so he should likely be an "only cat." Due to his inability to get along with other cats, Hemmi's days at the humane society shelter are spent in a cage, so it is imperative that he find a permanent home soon. For more information, please call Clayton County Humane Society a (770) 471-9436 Visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see other animals available for adoption.
