Meet Mickey Mouse the cat from Animal Allies Humane Society in Superior.

Mickey Mouse is about 10 years old, and is a very sweet and social feline. He is good around other cats and dogs. Mickey Mouse has been declawed.

If you would like to adopt Mickey Mouse or learn more about animal adoption, you can call the Animal Allies Humane Society of Superior at 715-394-7387.

We also talked with shelter officials today about heat safety for your pets, especially with today's soaring temperatures and humidity.

Here are some tips to keep your pets cool in this hot weather:
- Make sure your dog or cat gets some time out of the sun and in a shaded or cooler area
- Keep water on hand for your pets
- Try to avoid walking the dog during the day when it is the hottest. It is recommended to take your dog for a walk either during the early morning hours or evening when it is cooler.
- Keep your pet's paws protected, especially from the heated black top
- Don't leave your pet in the car
