A volunteer writes: Mary isn''t just a warm, gentle cat--she''s a sentry keeping an eye out for the people she loves. How else to explain the way she sits in her cat condo at the very front by the door, confident and calm, accepting pettings while her alert, curious eyes scan the room? She came to the Care Center as a clean and well-groomed stray, and her finder said that she was very friendly, especially with small kids, who were able to pet and hold her. Our behavior team also gave her high marks, noting that she head-butted her way to an excellent rating. My favorite thing about Mary is that she''s so secure and intuitive; the lucky pet parents who get to adopt her will bring home a best friend, sweet pet, and a guardian angel.
