Ada County Pet of the Week: Echo


Echo, 2, is a 5 1/2-pound spayed female domestic shorthair with gorgeous brown and black tiger stripes. She came to the shelter as a stray but has proven to be a very sweet and gentle cat. Echo can be a little shy and may need some time to familiarize herself with her surroundings and new people. Once she is comfortable, she’s happy to curl up next to you and take a nice snooze. She can also be quite playful — pull some string in front of her or shine a laser pointer on the wall and watch her go. Echo is looking for a home that can provide plenty of chin scratches and lots of love.
