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 Hoppity, a big fur-ball that needs a comfy house and a warm lap.
- Name: Hoppity
- Type of animal: Cat
- Age: 4 years
- Weight: 11 pounds
- Gender: Male, neutered
- Breed: Norwegian Forest Cat - mix
Hoppity has bright golden eyes, a little bit of red on his nose, and long white whiskers. He's very handsome, but most people think his most outstanding feature is his paws, as they are exceptionally large.
At first Hoppity comes off as an introvert, but don't let his initial shyness fool you: Hoppity warms up quickly. Just let him sit on your lap while you brush him and you'll be friends for life.
Hoppity can be your only cat, or he would do well living with a kitty friend. His adoption fee of $125 each includes medical exam, neuter, up to date vaccinations, and microchip identification.
