Pet of the Week: Zonk

Zonk is available for adoption at the City/County Animal Shelter.

Meet Zonk

Zonk is a young male domestic shorthair kitty. He came to the City/County Animal Shelter as a stray but is very friendly and outgoing, according to shelter staff, who describe him as “one cool dude.”

Unlike most cats, who have 18 toes – five toes on each of their front feet, and four on the back – Zonk has 17 toes after having one removed upon arrival at the shelter.

“We noticed he had a sort of abscess on one of his feet,” a shelter staffer said. “So, we had him checked out and ended up needing a toe amputated.”

Following his toe surgery, Zonk recovered at a foster home. He’s now doing great and ready for his forever home.

His missing toe does not slow him down in the slightest, the staffer said.
