Ada County Pet of the Week: Neeko


Neeko, 5, is a 13-pound neutered male domestic shorthair. Neeko is a bright-eyed, curious fellow who loves to explore his surroundings. Neeko is shy around people at first and likes to be comfortable with them before allowing them to pick him up. Once you’ve built a relationship, you’ll see how sweet and affectionate he can be. He enjoys head-rubs and sitting on your lap when he’s decided you’re his friend. Neeko still has a playful kitten streak to him, where he loves to chase after balls and feather toys. Neeko will make a wonderful companion for someone who is patient and loving. Give him the time to get to know you and you’ll find yourself with a lifelong best friend. Because of his shyness, Neeko will do best in a home with older children or adults only.

Neeko (#37551700) is available for adoption in Cattery Kennel 70 at our shelter, 4775 Dorman Street. in Boise. The Idaho Humane Society is open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Find more information about Neeko and other adoptable pets at
