It's time to meet Bleeker, our featured Pet of the Week, and find out why you should adopt now if your looking for a pet for the Holiday.

Each week we feature a pet from the Animal Welfare Society in New Milford who's looking for a new forever home. Today let's meet "Bleeker".

Bleeker is a 9-year-old domestic short hair, and he's a Tuxedo Cat. He's very friendly and sociable, and had no reservations about interacting with us here in the studio. He's a little overweight, so you have more to love, but a little portion control would get him back in top shape fast. He loves chasing ribbons and gets along well with everyone. He would really like to have a new family and a new forever home this Christmas.

For more information on Bleeker, and all the other adoptable Dogs and Cats, call the Animal Welfare Society at (860) 354-1350 or visit them on Dodd Road in New Milford.

They’re open Tuesday from 11 AM to 7 PM, and Wednesday through Saturday from 11 AM to 2 PM.

Listen to Mr. Morning weekdays from 6:00-10AM on 105.5 FM, online at or by downloading the radioPup app for your mobile devices.
