Pets of The Week



Tabby, an adorable and loving 10-year-old, Brown Tiger 11.9-pound spayed female Domestic Shorthair mix cat, joins Buddy, a 7-year old, 7.5-pound black and white neutered chihuahua as this week’s cat and dog of the week, available for adoption from the Humane Society of Delaware County (HSDC), located at 4920 Ohio 37 east of Delaware.

If you like a lot of cat to love, Tabby is your lady. And she has a lot of love to give; if you catch her fancy, she’ll wash your nose and the nape of your neck. When Tabby was surrendered with her cat-mate (now adopted) in mid-April, she was already spayed and declawed. The details of their history were a bit murky, so lets just move forward from here. Tabby is seeking a home and a lap and all the attention you wish to give her. She does not do well around fellow felines so would to best in a home with no other cats. Come by soon and get to know Tabby, you are sure to fall in love with her. I
