ADOPTED! 12 Strays of Christmas: Meet Smokey and Bojangles

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) – Have you thought this season about opening up your heart and your home to a sweet animal in need?

This year, we introduce to you "The 12 Strays of Christmas".

Action News 5 is partnering with the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County to share with you 12 animals in need of homes this holiday season. We will introduce you to a new pet each day through December 22. And each pet featured in the "12 Strays of Christmas" comes with a very special adoption fee of just $12.

Meet Smokey and Bojangles

Smokey and Bojangles are a bonded pair, meaning they to go together because they are very best friends.

They came from the same home, where the owner had to give them up back in July. Smokey and Bojangles can both be adopted for $12 total.

Smokey is an 11-year-old gray and white cat with beautiful gray/green eyes. He came to the Humane Society already declawed.

Since he's an older cat, he doesn't always get the same attention from visitors as the younger cats and kittens. But don't let his age fool you, since there's a lot of life left in him! He loves attention and petting, and would make a wonderful companion to anyone seeking a feline friend.

Bojangles is a six-year-old orange male tabby cat. He lives with his friend Smokey. Smokey is always at the front of the cage asking for attention, while Bojangles hangs in the back. He's just a nice guy who's trying to make the best of a situation he doesn't understand. He can be very affectionate once he gets to know you.

If you are interested in making Smokey and Bojangles the newest members of your family, contact the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County at 901-937-3900.

The $12 adoption fee for Smokey and Bojangles includes the following:

  • Spay/neuter surgery
  • Rabies vaccination
  • Age appropriate vaccines
  • De-worming treatments
  • Heartworm testing (dogs only)
  • FIV/Leukemia testing (cats only)
