Receive a special discount on the adoption fee by adopting a Pet of the Week!!!

My story is a little sad; I was abandoned and left where there was no heat, food or water. You can imagine how happy I was to see the Humane Officer; he brought me here to the shelter. Wow, I was so hungry when I arrived but I am not hungry anymore. Not only do I get food but goodies and treats too. I am five years old and neutered. I think I would do best with a single owner because I become very attached to my caretaker. I think because I was abandoned I worry a new person may leave me too. So I fall in love and donít want to share any of my personís attention. If someone comes to visit I may bark because I worry that person will take my person away. So if you adopt me I will need a quiet place to go when company comes by. I walk best with a harness and I do like toys. I know I have some needs that everybody will not respect, but I still have faith that there is one person somewhere that will give me a second chance at happiness. I was also saved by the Humane Officer and he brought me to the shelter. It is nice to have people care about you. I am five years old and spayed. I am now living in a foster home but I am still looking for a forever home. Everybody likes me and I am quite friendly too, I get along with other cats. I have being waiting for my family for over three months. I am thankful for my foster family but want to belong to someone forever. If you would like to meet me please call the shelter and schedule a time to come see me.
