Valentine is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s an 8-month-old, 12- pound, male, Domestic Short Hair cat with a Brown Tabby coat.

Valentine was a two-month-old kitten when he was taken to another shelter. After that he was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through the FOCAS (Friends of County Animal Shelters) program. He spent a few weeks in foster care before returning to Rancho Coastal Humane Society, where he was quickly adopted.

Five months later, his adopter returned Valentine, saying that he was too active for their home situation.

Valentine is still very much a kitten. He’s outgoing and social with people. He might do best in a home where the owners have had cats in the past.

The $100 adoption fee for Valentine includes medical exams, vaccinations, neuter, and registered microchip. For information about Adoption by Appointment or to become a Virtual Foster log on to
