PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Domino is a 6-year-old neutered male cat. He is a very handsome cat waiting to find a home to call his own. Domino has taken on the job of “office manager” here at the shelter and you can bet he’ll greet you at the door when you come to visit him. Domino has to eat a urinary tract cat food to keep him from forming crystals in his urine. He’s friendly and has a wonderful personality.
