Prickly Pete and new mom, Jean Mann

Prickly Pete is Adopted! Just a week after his prickly predicament, Pete spent his morning on the media circuit before settling in for his adoption debut at the Arizona Humane Society's (AHS) Sunnyslope shelter. As potential feline adopters browsed the adoption floor for their perfect match, it was Jean Mann of Sun City who fell for the purring cat. Although Jean had come to AHS on Wednesday to find a furry friend for her son and 8-year-old granddaughter, it was actually Jean who left with a new best friend. Despite attempts to get her son to adopt Pete, Jean continued to fall for the handsome feline and the rest as they say, is history!   It seems to be a match made in heaven – Jean hates cacti and has promised that Pete will be an indoor cat only and will never meet a cactus quite the way he did last week.   Additional Prickly Pete media coverage: ABC 15 - KPNX-TV 12 News - KPNX-TV New York Daily News
