Animal Services staff say they love Bambino, describing him, “If Harry Dean Stanton was a cat, he’d be Bambino. If you wanted to share a bottle of bourbon with a cat, this would be the one. If you needed to hire a hard-boiled cat detective, Bambino would be your man. This guy found himself homeless when things went a little haywire in his life. We can only imagine the tales he has to tell but he’s looking forward to a brighter future now.”

Bambino (No. A0922169) is estimated to be about 3 years old. He’s neutered and ready to go home right away. Those interested can meet Bambino in Kitty Corner 2 at the Martinez shelter. His pet profile is at and videos and photographs are available at and
