Kobe (HB Independent / December 4, 2012)

Kobe is a gentle 9-year-old orange tabby, with bright green eyes and a soft, fluffy coat. He arrived at the shelter in September when his owner moved away and could not keep him.

Although a little bit shy, Kobe is inquisitive and very alert to the world around him. You can see he is hoping for something special in his holiday stocking, which is hung with care outside his kennel. While we don't know whether Kobe is as talented as his basketball namesake, we do know he is healthy, already neutered and actively seeking a new forever home.

Come meet this sweet ginger cat, who will use his subtle charms to encourage you to make his holiday wishes come true. Kobe's adoption fees are discounted 25% all week when you mention this announcement at the Orange County Humane Society, 21632 Newland St., Huntington Beach.
