Pet of the week | Onyx
Onyx is an 18-month-old domestic shorthair cat. He is sweet but shy, though he makes friends quickly with fellow felines. Onyx likes to lounge around and loves to have his chin scratched. He is current on his vaccines, has been neutered and is microchipped. Inquiries about adopting Onyx or other cats and dogs can be made at the Humane Society of the Nature Coast shelter at Wiscon and Mobley roads, Brooksville. Visiting hours at the shelter are from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. The shelter is run strictly on donations; no government subsidies are provided. Adoption fees are $100 for dogs, $40 for adults cats and $65 for kittens, and cover the costs for all vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchipping. For information, call (352) 796-2711.
