Yannis the cat is one of the favorites of the staff at the Bonaire Animal Shelter. He just loves to be held and stroked and always shows his appreciation by purring. In fact he was like a big brother to a tiny little puppy who had to spend some time in the cat cage because she was too small to be put in with the other puppies. Yannis played with her and even let her bite his tail. What a considerate personality. Yannis is about a year old; he’s handsome with his incredible green eyes and white accents to coordinate with the grays of his tabby fur. He’s been checked out by the vet, has had his shots and worming and sterilization and is ready to go to the perfect loving home.
You may see Yannis at the Shelter on the Lagoen Road, open Monday through Saturday, 9 am to 1 pm and 3 to 5 pm. Tel. 717-4989. MERRY CHRISTMAS! Although fireworks may be fun for some people they’re hell for the animals on the island.
If you lose your pet or if you find one, please call the Shelter at 717-4989. They’ll act as a “go between” and try to reunite the owner with the lost pet.
