Adoptable animal of the week: Kismet
on June 7, 2011
Oakland North is continuing with our feature. Every Tuesday, Oakland Animal Services will spotlight an “Animal of the Week” that’s up for adoption at their facility. This week it’s Kismet:
Kismet is a charming and fun 9-year-old cat. And, if you met him, you’d never guess his secret—Kismet is deaf. Even he doesn’t seem to know it. Kismet is happy to play with toys or sit and watch the world from the window. He needs to be an indoor cat due to his pure white fur and hearing impairment; he also should be in a home without young children or other animals. Please consider giving Kismet a home. For more photos and a video of him, click here. Visit Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA and ask to see Kismet. You can also go to www.oaklandanimalservices.org.
Part of the Oakland Police Department, Oakland Animal Services is both an Animal Control unit—which is in charge of the city’s public safety and animal welfare—and a shelter, which helps abused, neglected and abandoned animals within its facility.
