Pet of the Week: Delilah the Cat

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - She might not have inspired the hit song, but Delilah the cat is ready to be your new love.
Let's go meet News 13's Pet of the Week.

Kimberly Imbert; FNSB Animal Shelter - Animal Tender>>"Hi I'm Kimberly and this week's pet of the week is Delilah. Delilah is a short haired cat who came to the shelter as a stray. We estimated her at about 3 years old, so she is really young and is looking for a loving home. Because she is a stray, we don't know a lot about her past, she doesn't seem to mind other cats and dogs but we don't know how she is with them in the home. Delilah is significantly over-weight and she would really benefit from a home that could keep her on a diet and maybe increase her activity so that she can lose some weight. Her back does hurt a little bit so she doesn't enjoy being picked up, but hopefully that would improve with weight loss. Because she doesn't like to be carried around, she probably isn't recommended for a home with children. Delilah likes to talk and she really likes canned food. Delilah likes to be brushed because she is a little bit bigger, so she can't groom herself as easily as a cat that is in shape. Delilah has other dog and cat friends at the shelter, as well as a lot of rabbits."
