This week’s Galveston County Animal Resource Center pets of the week are Rocco and Tomlin.

Rocco (A009396) is 3 years old and handsome. He’s neutered and ready for a change of scenery. He spends his time exploring the play yards and snuggling with his big yellow Pikachu. What he wants more than anything in this world is for a loving family to walk through the shelter doors and say “I choose you!”

Tomlin (A008359) is a domestic short hair teenager wearing a blue tuxedo coat. Tomlin is taking the honor of “Cat of the Week” as seriously as a playful 7 1/2 month old kitty can. He is curious, friendly and outgoing. Come get acquainted with this handsome young kitty soon — he may just be the right one.
