Cat of the Week: Half Pint

Half Pint is a very cute tabby and white little kitten about 6 weeks old who desperately needs out of the shelter!

Poor Half Pint was found huddled in the corner of someone’s backyard, dirty and scared. This little guy doesn’t have a full tail, which is quite endearing! He’s covered in fleas (though has been treated), is a bit underweight and could really use some TLC. Half Pint is pretty shy/fearful, but not in a hissy way at all. In fact, he tends to melt in your hands when you pick him up and he’s scared. He does like to be calm and sweet in your lap while you work at the computer, and with a little socialization will be a great lap cat.

Half Pint is fearful and not in great condition so he needs to leave ASAP before he gets sick.
