Shitake is a Turkish Van mixed. Meaning she is mostly white, with blotches of brownish-orange tabby on her tail, ears, and back.
Shitake is a shy at first, but don't let that fool you! She wants nothing more than to be loved and purrs loudly as soon as she's petted. Not necessarily a lap cat, she will eagerly curl up beside you (and has no qualms about reminding you to keep petting her). This inquisitive and beautiful girl is energetic, eager to engage and wild about treats.
Shitake was rescued from the median of I-85/Hwy 96 in Oxford, behind a hotel in late 2017. She was dirty, very thin, and she had kittens the next day. She is an example of why you should chip your pets. This cat must have been owned and pampered by someone! And there is no possible way to find out who loved her. Will you be willing to give her the home she deserves?
