Facts about Meridia

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 23320
  • Hair: Short
This beautiful young lady is Meridia, a black and white beauty that is just about 3 years old. Meridia came to us when she was just a tiny 8 week old kitten, and she was hiding beneath a trailer all by herself. There was no mom in sight and little Meridia needed help. Meridia needed some medical attention when she first came in and spent some time in our hospital, but this little lady is healthy now, and is eager to start her life over in a great home of her own. Meridia stays in our free roaming area and spends her days socializing with other cats, and taking a snooze on a nice, comfy bed. Meridia gets along just fine with other cats and she just loves people of all ages. She has lots of spunk and energy, and is always up for playtime. She is extremely mushy too and is quite content just to snuggle in your arms. Nothing would make Meridia happier than to finally have the home of her dreams, with a family that would love and care for her forever, and never let her be lonely again. File#23320 2/20/14
