Meet Olive! This adorable one-year-old kitty was found by a concerned young man lying in a dumpster soaked in motor oil in January 2016. She was extremely thin and he rushed her to a veterinarian's office for help. It was discovered that in addition to being tossed in the dumpster, Olive had been shot numerous times with a pellet gun. One of the pellets injured her eye and broke a tooth. Olive didn't seem to mind her misfortune too much and recovered well with a lot of supportive nursing care. She's now looking for her forever home where she won't have to worry about being hungry or abused ever again. She is extremely playful and likes to be part of whatever people are doing. She is very affectionate but way too busy to be much of a lap cat right now. She tolerates most dogs and other cats.
