Why Choose me?
When we took a first glance at Lexy as we were walking toward her run, my husband thought she was a skunk, and I thought she was a long-haired black cat. When we took her out for her picture, we changed our minds and decided she was a Buddha, with that serene half-smile of hers. She is a complete sweetheart, happy to be in your arms, happy to wander around the interaction pen, sampling the smells. Lexy has a very pronounced waddle to her walk and a certain chunkiness to her middle that suggests she may be pregnant. Animal Control will have her checked out to be sure. If she’s pregnant, she can only be released to a rescue group, but if not, she is ready to bring joy to a new family.
