Teddy, about 3 years old, is talkative, affectionate and friendly. He’s a climber and likes looking out windows. Once he gets acquainted, this mellow cat is eager to be involved in whatever his human friends are doing. Teddy likes other cats but is unfamiliar with dogs. Teddy’s adoption fee is reduced to $25 this February during a “Seniority Sweetheart” special offered by Animal Rescue of Tracy. The nonprofit, all-volunteer rescue group has an adoption center for dogs and cats in the Macy’s wing of the West Valley Mall, 3200 Naglee Road, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays. For information: 642-4324 or

At almost 2 years old, Cam (left) was recently returned to East of Eden animal rescue because his guardian fell ill. A large cat, he is gentle with kittens and enjoys playing with them. He gets along well with other grown cats and has also been socialized with dogs. According to the rescue, “If you sit down and have time for him, he gently climbs on your lap and starts his motor going.” Jaylee, 11 months, is playful and active. This little black cat likes to lie across a friend’s chest or lap and purr. Cam’s and Jaylee’s adoption fees are $50 each, which covers spay or neuter costs, up-to-date vaccinations, deworming and a microchip. To learn more, contact Sheri Savage, 925-980-3035 or
