ElliotLakeToday, in partnership with the Society For Animals In Distress, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Hi, I’m Pete aka Mr. Perturbed!

I live up to my name well, I am rather perturbed a lot of the time. I am an older guy, so I’m allowed to be a little grumpy!

I am a large orange and white male and I like to think I run the cat room with my attitude. I enjoy affection strictly on my own terms.

I like to be around people when it’s convenient for me, I am a curious guy and have earned the nickname “curious orange."

I was surrendered to the shelter with Bella on Dec. 3, 2019.

I am a big boy and I’m nine years old.

I have adjusted well in the cat room, I pick the odd fight here and there, but most cats know I am the boss.

The girls at the shelter always tell me I’m just a big old meanie to Fred and George, which I don’t deny.

I have trained the humans at the shelter to feed me on my perch because when I am eating I don’t like to be disturbed and I usually eat with my back to the other cats so I don’t get upset, I guess you could say I’m a little bit of a diva?

I would do best in quiet home where I can spend my days being the boss and lounging.

If you think you’d like to be my new human come meet me! I’m never far and you’ll notice me right away!
