Pets of the Week: Loving Lavinia & People-Friendly Pinky

LAist relies on your reader support, not paywalls.
Freely accessible local news is vital. Please power our reporters and help keep us independent with a donation today.

Every Saturday, LAist will feature an adoptable cat and dog from a different local shelter or accredited 501c3 rescue organization. Take a look at these furry bundles and consider giving them a home, or forward their faces to friends who may be interested.


LAist’s cat of the week is Lavinia. She is an 11 month old gray Domestic Medium Hair with plush, silky-soft fur. Lavinia is a quadruple threat: fuzzy, furry, friendly, funny! She loves to play and to give and get affection. Lavinia has a calm, loving and sweet disposition, and she gets along great with other kitties. Lavinia is currently being cared for by People and Cats Together (PACT), a non-profit all volunteer cat rescue and placement group. Lavinia is available for adoption at the PACT cat and kitten adoption event held every Saturday from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Redondo Beach Petco. For more information about Lavinia or other cats for adoption, email or call 310-230-5974.
