Dobby, Dec. 17th Pet of the Week!

Even though the poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas,” commonly known as “’Twas the Night Before Christmas,” describes Mr. Claus as “a right jolly old elf,” Dobby looks anything but. Named for the beloved house elf in the Harry Potter series, Dobby looks as if he’s muttering “Bah, humbug!” Don’t let that fool you. This blue-eyed 7-year-old, who came to the shelter as a stray, is a true man cat and craves love, attention and maybe a sock—stuffed with catnip! Because the shelter is closed to the public, adoption appointments are conducted through email, so contact PetAdopt@longbeach.gov to meet Dobby. Ask for ID#651055.

(This rescue encouraged by the usual suspects.)
