This week, we are featuring an adorable kitty as our featured Pet of the Week.

Her name is Stormtrooper, and she's a two year old domestic short hair. She's a local cat who was picked up as a stray in New Milford.

Stormtrooper is pure white and a sweetheart. She loves the love, and likes to do the cat head butt thing, and to top it all off, she's got incredible eyes.

Stormtrooper suspects that other animals may be from the dark side, so she would do best as the single pet in your home. She is not all that tolerant of other dogs or cats, and probably would be better somewhere with no small children.

She is also a little shy around new people, but all it will take is a little patience so that she can get into a comfort zone. Stormtrooper has had all her vaccines, and has already been spayed.

Now, because of the COVID-19 restrictions, if you're interested in adopting one of the featured pets, or any dog or cat at the shelter, first fill out an application on their site at aws-shelter.org. Once your application is approved, you can call them at 860-354-1350 and schedule your one-on-one limited contact meeting.

The shelter is always in need of items to help keep the animals safe and clean. Right now, they are looking for bleach, paper towels and dry cat food.

If you can contribute, you can drop off the items at the shelter at 8 Dodd Road in New Milford. Just let them know you're going to drop something off, and you can do it with no contact by just leaving it in front of their building. You can also check the Animal Welfare website for the Amazon wish list, and have the items delivered right to the shelter.
