Adoptable animal of the week: Lancelot

on February 12, 2013

Oakland North is continuing with our feature. Every week, Oakland Animal Services will spotlight an “Animal of the Week” that’s up for adoption at their facility. This week it’s a cat named Lancelot.

Our adoptable cat of the week is a beautiful flame-point Siamese named Lancelot. Lancelot was rescued by the caretaker of a local feral colony when he gallantly trotted up to her and decreed that he was in search of his kingdom.  He is approximately 1 to 2 years old and is a gentle, loving guy.  Lancelot is searching for a warm, safe castle with lots of cozy pillows and blankets to curl up on. He is rather undemanding and is quite happy to hang out and have someone run their fingers through his luxurious mane. Like all good knights, however, Lancelot approaches new situations with caution and would prefer a quiet home where he won’t be ambushed by noisy family members.  He seems to appreciate the company of other cats and may do well as a companion to an existing cat.

To see a video of Lancelot, please visit his Petfinder profile, which can be found here: or visit Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA.

The total adoption fee for Lancelot is $35.  Lancelot has been neutered, microchipped, is current on all vaccinations and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. To adopt, all household members must meet with Lancelot, whether family or roommates.

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.
