Canyon County Pet of the Week: Mercury the cat

August 27, 2013 

Mercury, 8, is a tortoiseshell cat looking for a new home. Mercury can start out shy, but warms up quickly. She purrs while enjoying scratches on the top of her head or having her soft fur brushed...for a while. But mostly she just appreciates calm company. So if you are the type who prefers non-needy cats, you will get along great with Mercury.

Mercury is in Cat Room number 2, kennel 14, at the Canyon County Animal Shelter at 5801 Graye Lane in Caldwell. The hours of operation are 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Sunday. For more information on our other adoptable pets, visit
