Marcel wants to spend his golden years with you (resting in your lap).

This week's adoptable pet is a sweet, old kitty named Marcel. He's a cat with character who wants to spend his golden years in a loving home.

  • Quick Facts
  • Breed: domestic shorthair
  • Age: 10-15 years old
  • Sex: male
  • Size: 10 pounds
  • Color: orange tabby
  • Spayed/Neutered: yes
  • House-trained: yes

Marcel ended up at the shelter when his owner fell ill. He's a volunteer favorite, but it's time he had a permanent home again.

If you see him wink at you, it means "I like you!" A playful head-butt is another way he shows his affection.

Below Marcel does his best Grumpy Cat impersonation, but he's really a sweetie.
