Ada County pet of the week: Skeeter Bug

Skeeter Bug
Skeeter Bug

Skeeter Bug, 1-1/2, is a 15-pound neutered male domestic shorthair. He has a sleek black and brown tabby coat and bright green eyes. Skeeter Bug hasn’t had a normal home environment in his past and may be shy at first, but warms up immediately once you pet him. He doesn’t enjoy being picked up, so would do best in a home with older children or only adults. But he is a big, sweet boy who just wants love and has quickly become a staff favorite.

Skeeter Bug (#23323517) is in kennel 26 at the Idaho Humane Society, 4775 Dorman St. in Boise. The shelter is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week. Learn more about adoptable animals at
