This week’s Galveston Island Humane Society’s pets of the week are Grandma and Roscoe.

Grandma’s life was turned upside down when her owner’s had to move into a nursing home. They had Grandma for 10 long years. As a kitty, Grandma was given access to indoor/outdoor life and didn’t care for other cats too much.

Now, she’s content to be inside and lives in our community cat room with other furry felines. It may take a little time and patience for her to acclimate to a new home, but she really won’t ask much from her new family.

Grandma is a good balance of affectionate and independent and she’s just looking for some human companionship. She appreciates her alone time in the window sill and won’t bother you too much, she just wants a family who will love and accept her the way she is.

Meet Roscoe. He’s a new addition to the society who was recently surrendered because his owner was moving and Roscoe couldn’t go with them. Still a little unsure why he’s in the shelter, he can come across as shy. However, once he opens up, he enjoys being petted and talked to.

Roscoe is a little guy weighing in about 14 pounds. He’s a 1-year-old Chihuahua with a big personality and even bigger heart. He will make a great little buddy for someone — will that person be you?
