Pet of the Week – Patches

Patches sits in the shelter gazing at the butterflies on the wall, dreaming of a home where he can watch real butterflies through the window.

If you can make Patches’ dream come true, come to 2481 Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad to meet him.

Patches (A1589328) is a 5-year-old, neutered male who does well with other cats. His adoption fee is $35 and includes vaccinations, microchip and a free veterinary examination.
