Pets of the Week - June 5, 2008

Obie is a one and a half year old orange tabby domestic longhair.  He has been neutered and all vaccinations are current.  When he was only one week old, Obie's mom was hit and killed by a car.  Obie was taken in by a CCHS staff member, and for the next several weeks,  he was bottle-fed and given intensive love and attention.  As often happens with the handraised babies, Obie is extremely sweet and affectionate....he loves to give "kisses" and he loves to cuddle.  He does well with other cats and dogs.  For more information, please call Robin at 770/478-7531.  Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
