Esperanza is a 4-year-old gray and white tabby cat. She was overweight and a little cranky when she came to us, now she is a shelter favorite who can often be found hanging out with our vet staff. With her weight loss she has more energy and a healthier attitude, too. She would prefer an experienced cat owner and is ok with cats and dogs though she prefers being the diva of the house.

To meet Esperanza and other cats needing loving homes, visit ASAP at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter, 5473 Overpass Road. Hours are 9:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Saturday, (open until 7 p.m. on Wednesdays) and 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call the ASAP office at 683-3368 or visit their website at
