Pet Talk: Meet Lieutenant Mittens

An adorable feline who loves people, being held, and petted

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY-TV) - It’s time to meet our pet of the week for all you cat lovers, this lovable feline could be the one for you.

Meet Lieutenant Mittens! Mittens is a 3-year-old male domestic shorthair tabby cat who is very affectionate. 

Lieutenant Mittens loves people, being, held, and petted. 

The Humane Society of Yuma picked Lieutenant Mittens as the pet of the week because he’s in the need of a forever home.

What makes Lieutenant Mittens special is he enjoys playing with toys. 

Lieutenant Mittens entered the shelter as a stray with a broken leg but it is healing nicely and he will be getting his cast off soon.   

He gets along great with kittens so he would most likely do well with other cats.  

Come visit Lieutenant Mittens and all his furry friends at the Humane Society of Yuma. Located at 4050 S. Avenue 4 1/2 E, or call (928) 782-1621.

HSOY is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

If you want to give Lieutenant Mittens or any animal at the Humane Society a good home you can contact or visit the Humane Society of Yuma today.
