Pet of the Week – Macchiato

This handsome, caffeine-inspired cat is available at the Carlsbad location. His name is Macchiato, and if a name defines you the definition is: An extremely independent and self-sufficient person; you dislike taking orders or advice from anyone. (Sounds like a cat to us!)

Macchiato is a 2-year-old, neutered male, domestic longhair, looking to add some calorie-free octane to your house. Visit him at the County Animal Services shelter in Carlsbad, 2481 Palomar Airport Road.

Please bring his ID number, A1453359, for reference. His adoption fee is $58 and includes vaccinations, licensing and a microchip. If you’d like to check out the other animals at the department’s three shelters, please visit the County Animal Services website at
