Astro the Gray Cat

January 28, 2013 at 9:45 AM

WEST CALDWELL, NJ - Great news - Astro has been adopted!

Astro is a large 4 years old male cat ready to be adopted from the Orphaned Pets of West Caldwell. Astro’s coat is Gray with blue and silver short hair.

Here are the medical facts about Astro:

  • Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • House trained

Astro has been sitting at the window waiting for his forever home but nobody seems to be looking for him to take him home. He is a really nice cat and even gets along well with other cats,” commented Rosemarie at the shelter. “His previous owner had to give him up when he moved and Astro is now stuck in a spare bedroom at his foster mom's home. He is a good boy, just a little over 4 years old and he has many more years to give his new family. To learn more about this sweet cat, please call me at 973-865-6421.”

Astro's foster Mom commented, "Astro has never bitten or scratched me in anger. He is a very good cat and enjoys the company of other cats. He will jump into your lap and “flop” down. You can pet him in any manner and he will love it. Seems that dogs don’t spook him."
