Purrfect Post Cat of the Month - Smokey Joe!

Looking for a cool cat who’s also smokin’ hot?  Look no further than our Smokey Joe.  This handsome gray tabby is a big fellow with a heart and personality to match.

Smokey Joe will instantly disprove the belief that cats are aloof and independent.  He loves to greet visitors with a head butt to the hand, asking for attention.  His silky blue-gray coat just invites a good petting, and his big gold eyes are looking for love.

A champion purrer, Smokey Joe is not shy about expressing his contentment.  In fact, he’s just about the purrfect cat – all that’s missing is a loving, forever home where he can lavish his affection on a human, or a family of humans, of his very own.

Smokey Joe is FIV positive, although that certainly doesn’t slow him down.  Most cats who test positive live long and healthy lives, but some potential adopters are needlessly scared away. Smokey Joe doesn’t require any special treatment – just regular visits to the vet like any other pet.  Check out our post about FIV for more information.

Although he’s a volunteer favorite, a cat as friendly and affectionate as Smokey Joe deserves the love and attention he can only find in a place of his own.  Stop by and visit him – and share this post with your friends.  Let’s send this great guy home!

You can see Smokey Joe's Petfinder page here. All cats with the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, dewormed, on flea prevention and tested for FIV/FeLV. Adoptions come with a small bag of Hill's Science Diet food and one month free of pet health insurance.
