Welcome to Encinitas Patch Pet of the Week.
Each week, Encinitas Patch works with the to feature a pet in need of a loving home.
This week meet Chinook, a cat with a coat that’s a work of art.
- Name: Chinook
- Type of animal: Cat
- Age: 3-1/2 years
- Weight: 8 pounds
- Gender: Female, spayed
- Breed: Calico, short-haired
You might do a double-take when you look at Chinook’s beautiful face. It looks like her colorful calico fur was designed by a committee that couldn't agree on what she should look like, giving her a truly distinct pattern.
If you're looking for a snuggle-cat that likes hanging with her people, Chinook could be just what the doctor ordered. If you already have a cat or you want to add to your kitty clowder (that's the term for a group of cats) then you'll want to check out the other cats at RCHS. While she loves people, she's not wild about cats. That’s probably because they make fun of her face.
For more information about Chinook and other dogs, cats, and rabbits that need families call 760-753-6413, log on to SDpets.org, or visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas. Kennels are open Wednesday through Monday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
