Aptly named ‘Kitty’ is up for adoption in Alexandria

Toys, treats and neck rubs — Kitty knows what he wants.

The four-year-old gray and white male domestic short-haired cat is up for adoption with the Animal Welfare league of Alexandria.

“Once Kitty gets to know you, be prepared for a loyal companion,” said AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter. “Kitty is also a keen observer, fascinated as much by the people around him as the birds out the window, and he can’t wait to see what he can…well, see from the vantage point of his new home.”

Hardter said Kitty is a fan of all kinds of toys, treats and head and neck rubs.
