This week’s featured pet from the Wisconsin Humane Society is Garfield. This sweet-but-shy guy needs a little patience as he comes out of his shell, so he’d do best in a home with children are over the age of 5. Once Garfield is comfortable, he loves to get treats and head scratches.

This handsome 4-year-old kitty is available for adoption at the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Racine Campus. If you’re looking to add a furry feline to your life, please visit the Humane Society’s adoption page today to meet Garfield!
