Alejandro is bashful, but ready for a home
Pet of the Week BY LAURA VINROE, Humane League of Lancaster County
Take one look at Alejandro's long, soft-as-down orange fur and beautiful, golden eyes, and you'll understand how this Angora mix earned his exotic name.
But 10-month-old Alejandro is more than just a pretty face; he also has a very sweet personality. He may be too shy to make the first move, but he is appreciative of your affection and will nuzzle in close for more.
Despite his bashfulness, Alejandro is quite the socialite. In his previous home, Alejandro enjoyed the company of other kitties and his best buddy was a dog. When he's not cuddling his favorite people, Alejandro can be found soaking up the sun during a lazy afternoon snooze.
Offer him a bit of wet food, catnip or entice him with a toy, and you'll make his day a very happy one. Alejandro would be the perfect companion for a quiet home with a family who can develop his confidence. He may have the physique of a model, but Alejandro is really just a family guy eager to once again have a place in a loving home.
