Paisley (1).jpg
Cat of the week

 

Paisley is the perfect cat looking for a great family to love. When we say perfect, what we mean is that she is gentle, kind and loving. She is very accepting and patient with just about everything and everybody. She would do best in a home without other cats or a home that is willing to give her a slow, positive introduction to other cats. If she sounds like the cat for you, please fill out an adoption application to come and meet her and see for yourself! 

Intake Date: 08/04/2021
Approximate Age: 1 year old - 08/07/2021
