Melanie is also known as Miss Mellie to her friends. She is a real beauty who loves to be brushed and petted.
Melanie was born in 2009. She came from a California animal shelter with stomatitis, or inflamed mouth. She occasionally has flare ups which require a steroid injection to treat.
Since coming here, she's feeling like her playful self, and more than ready to find a home.
