Facts about Charlie

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 33588810
  • Hair: Unknown
Charlie is gentle young lady who is a bit shy in her new surroundings. You see, her owners had to move and could no longer keep her (or her pal Parker) in their new place. So, now sweet Charlie is hoping for a wonderful new home. She is a perfect adoption age as she is beyond kittenish mischief, but is a young lass with many years of friendship to give. Charlie is an independent girl, and would be a great pet for someone who works. While Charlie is very sweet and been around children, she is easily frightened by loud noises (but then who isn’t) and car rides. So, when you come to meet Charlie, and she hopes you will, be sure to give her a little time to warm up and trust that you are the wonderful friend she is looking for. You will be glad you did.
