What a great name for our last Pet of the Week before Christmas. Santa Paws is actually in town, and at the Animal Welfare Society in New Milford.

Santa Paws has checked his list, and all he wants for Christmas is you.

He's a 2-year-old domestic short hair, but he's also what's known as a polydactyl cat, and that means he was born with more than the usual number of toes on one or more of his paws.

Santa Paws is such a gentle and friendly guy, who looks like he's got a great career being a lap kitty. He's had all his shots and has been nurtured, so he's all set and ready for you to take him home.

Here's a close up and personal look at Santa Paws:
