Pet of the Week Dog 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.”

There definitely isn’t enough time in the day to introduce you to all of the beauties that keep smiles on our faces. We aren’t sure how a beyond sweet, soft furred, healthy and clean big boy ended up stray but he did. He was obviously well loved. The area where he was found was rechecked for signs, but nothing turned up. The Shelter posted on Nextdoor with photos and still nothing. They’ve shown him as a found stray through the appropriate and required avenues and, you guessed it...nothing. So now, we get to share him with you as an available adoptable. They have named him Kiko, and he’s all that anyone can dream of in a cat. He is a big love bug. If you have been looking for “the one,” he’s single and available. He’s asked us to keep his fan club exclusive so that he still has time to enjoy his long cat naps. He’s been assured that we’d only share him with the best.
