EDINBURG – Orange tabby Baby Huey is looking for the perfect place to call home.

Animal caretaker Katrina Keywood at the Shenandoah County Animal Shelter said Baby Huey has been a resident of the shelter since the last week of August after his owners surrendered him due to allergies.

“He’s very loving,” she said.

The 4-year-old domestic shorthair adjusted well to the shelter at first, but Keywood said he has grown restless in his cage and is looking for a home where he can roam freely and explore his surroundings.

She added that Baby Huey is an indoor cat and would do well in a quieter home where he can adjust to his new surroundings at his own pace. A home without young children or dogs would be best for him.

“He probably wants to be an only child,” she said. “I wouldn’t stress him with another cat.”

He still plays a bit, but prefers to snuggle and be petted by his family.

“He’s very inquisitive of everything that’s around him,” she added. “He definitely loves affection.”

Baby Huey is neutered and up-to-date on his vaccinations. His adoption fee is $15.
