Adoptable Pet of the Week: Alexis

on January 28, 2014

Alexis is a gentle and easy-to-please girl whose favorite pastime is curling up for a nap in just about any soft, sunny spot. When she’s not napping, she loves to snuggle close to people for cheek scratches and belly-rubs. Alexis can be playful at times, especially when presented with just the right string toy.

She may need a day or two to settle in to a new home, but once she feels safe, she is filled with purrs. Alexis will do best in a quiet home without young children or dogs. She arrived at the shelter with another cat and may do well as a companion to an existing cat-friendly cat.

Alexis has been spayed, microchipped, is current on her vaccinations and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. Her adoption fee is $35. To adopt, all household members must meet with Alexis, whether family or roommates.

To learn more about Alexis, visit his Petfinder profile: or stop by Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Ave. for a visit. We are conveniently located 3 blocks from the Fruitvale BART station.

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.
