Cats have a reputation for being somewhat aloof, but nobody has told that to Alex yet.
The five-year-old tabby up for adoption at the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA) is desperate for attention and affection.
“If you feel a tap on your shoulder when you’re at the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria, it might be Alex,” said Gina Hardter, a spokesperson for the AWLA. “He hasn’t quite gotten the hang of physical distancing, but he certainly knows how to get attention.”
Alex isn’t the biggest pet at the AWLA, but Hardter said he might have the biggest personality.
“Alex is looking for a playmate, and he’s willing to go to great lengths to meet you,” Hardter said. “Reaching through the bars of his kennel? Check! Showing off his belly? Check! Doing a happy little dance until you say hi? Check, check and check!”
Appointments to meet Alex and potentially adopt him can be made online.
