  • Animal History: We rescued her from a parking lot of a nearby restaurant.

Unfortunately, 4 months later, he is not accepting of her. We have helped her get all of her vaccines, spay surgery, and a microchip. We think she would be great with kids, or other cats with the same amount of playful energy.
