Hi all. I am a bit sad because my loving owner is not longer here, and I am looking for my new forever home. Being an older gal i am not as active as i was, but that makes me the perfect cat that won't get into any trouble. Although I may be shy at first, I warm up to you and love to be pet behind my ears and chin and snuggled. You should come by and see me, who knows we could be the best of friends too! To meet me, email my foster family at
