Pet of the WeekDog and Cat print

Stu News Newport is delighted to be working with the Newport Beach Animal Shelter to help get the word out in search of loving homes for pets that deserve a warm, nurturing environment and a place to call “home.”

Simon is an amazing 7-month-old kitten that is looking for his forever home. He will do well in a home with another kitten between 6 months to two years of age, will be completely fine being an only cat that gets all of his family’s attention or will, most likely, enjoy the companionship of a cat-friendly dog.

When Simon was found as a tiny kitten, he had two broken bones, one was fixed surgically and the other through cage rest. His foster parents paid for the surgery personally and Simon is now ready for his own forever home. He is a gorgeous cat that absolutely loves being a kitten and enjoys water more than the average feline. Together we can make Simon’s dreams come true.
