Meet our lovable Pets of the Week looking for forever homes at the RSPCA ACT Shelter!
Kenobi and Lexi are this week’s friendly Pets of the Week! These gorgeous animals are waiting to find their perfect match. Think that could be you? Read more about them below.
Cat of the Week – Kenobi
Obi-Won once said: “Be mindful of your thoughts, Anakin, they betray you.” Well, the only thing we’re thinking about is what a cutie Kenobi is!
This guy came to the shelter through no fault of his own and is ready to find his new home. He is looking to leave the stress of being a Jedi Knight and retire to become a lounge lizard. OK, he may not be a Jedi, but he certainly was stressed at his old home. In between kids, dogs and other cats, Kenobi was just about ready to pack it in.
In his new home, Kenobi will need a much quieter vibe. He will need to be the only pet which means more quality cuddle time!
Kenobi likes to investigate and then plop himself down in your lap for a little scratch and cuddle. Kenobi is very sweet, but you can expect him to be a little shy at first. He would benefit from having an experienced cat owner to help him settle in and adjust to his new home. Once he’s calm and comfortable, though, he’s a delight! To help with his stress, we’d recommend Kenobi have access to a cat run so he can blow off some steam and explore.
Dog of the Week – Lexi
Miss Lexi is a gorgeous girl who’s ready to em-bark on a new life! Lexi is a medium-sized dog with a gorgeous rusty, auburn coloured coat and iconic Kelpie pointing ears. Lexi is well established in her adult years and is looking forward to settling into a steady paced life with her new family.
Lexi is a soft and gentle dog who absolutely adores people. She is very affectionate and happy to have her belly rubbed while you both enjoy each other’s company. If you’re after a cuddle buddy on the couch, she’d make an ideal candidate.
Lexi is not as active as she used to be. She prefers regular but gentle exercising and would therefore make an excellent strolling buddy. One thing Lexi adores more than belly rubs is – the tennis ball. If Lexi could have a life mantra, it would be throw, catch, retrieve, repeat!
Lexi has lovely manners around food and loves a snack. Tempt her with a bit of chicken and she’ll be your friend for life. Lexi has shown she can meet some other dogs, but we would recommend she be the only dog in the home. She wouldn’t suit a house with pocket pets or cats, but is a gem with small people aged eight years or older.
Lexi will make a lovely dog for one lucky family.
