Facts about Whitey

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 26002
  • Hair: Short
This sweet older lady is Whitey, a 12 year old black and white beauty that would just love to snuggle up on the couch next to you and be your friend forever. Whitey came to us with two other cats and a terribly neglected dog when their owner became ill and turned over the care of her pets to someone else, who really didn't care for them much at all. Whitey and the cats were in much better shape than the poor dog, Puffer, but they are all happy to be safe and cared for now. You literally cannot walk past Whitey without her trying to get your attention by mushing herself toward you. For having been in a home her whole life and now in an unfamiliar place, Whitey is not letting it get her down at all. She is making friends everywhere she turns and just can't get enough love and attention. She is so outgoing and friendly, and just wants you to love her. Whitey is fine with dogs and cats and would fit in perfectly with any good family that will love and care for her always. File#26002 2/24/16
