Pet of the Week – Yuruichi

Say hello to Yuruichi. This beautiful cat is named after an anime character who can transform herself into a black cat.

Our 2-year-old girl does have a flair for the dramatic so maybe she has more in common with Yuruichi than just her name! We do know she’s an easygoing girl who loves to hang out in our community room and get brushed by all her volunteer friends.

While that’s nice, it still doesn’t beat having a forever home so if you’re looking for a laid-back kitty cat, come visit Yuruichi. You’ll find her at 2481 Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad. Hours are anytime between 9:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Her identification number is A1719375 and you can name your price for her adoption fee. County Animal Services is running the “Name Your Price” promotion throughout the month of August. She’s already been spayed so the price you name will include current vaccinations and flea control, and a free veterinary exam within the first 10 days. For more information, visit or call (619) 767-2675.
