Pet of the Week: Canyon

Posted at 6:40 AM, Nov 22, 2019

HELENA — The Lewis and Clark Humane Society’s Pet of the Week is a laid-back cat looking for a home.

Canyon is a two-year-old black cat who came to the shelter about a month ago as a stray – making him one of the longest-term cats there. Staff members say he had a collar on when he was found, but no one has come to claim him.

“He’s a very sweet but kind of solo cat,” said Katie Axline-Pittman, the Humane Society’s cat program coordinator. “He’s not super needy – which is super nice – gets along well with the other kitties and just likes to spend his days sleeping in a cat tree.”

Because Canyon is so quiet, Axline-Pittman says he could be a good choice for a first-time cat owner. She also believes he could share a home with other cats or dogs, especially if they’re older. However, they are looking for a home without children.

“They’re just too loud and rambunctious for him; he tends to hide,” she said.

Canyon is in the Humane Society’s open cat room, so you can visit him whenever the shelter is open, Tuesday through Saturday afternoons.
