What better way to ring in the new year than with a new furry best friend?!

Figaro, the feisty and playful 18-month-old cat would love to help you celebrate 2016 in his new forever home!

He is still very much a kitten and has enough energy to keep play time going for hours. He loves to chase laser pointers all around the house and is sure one of these times he will be able to catch it before it disappears!

Figaro is also a pretty independent, curious boy but when he seeks you out for attention, you are in for a real treat.

He loves to cuddle and once you start to scratch him, he is a total purr machine! To show you just how happy he is to spend time together, he will rub all over your lap and nudge his little head all over your arms.

Bring the whole family down to meet this handsome man and see if he’s the purr-fect fit for you!

You can meet Figaro at Sunnyslope. His adoption fee is $40, which covers his neuter surgery and vaccines. For more information, call 602-997-7585 or visit the Arizona Humane website

UPDATE: Last week's pet of the week, Lula, was able to find a home just in time for Christmas!
