My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Hi, I'm Speedy! I'm about 2 years old and came to Almost Home as an owner surrender shortly after Christmas in 2021. I don't trust people right away, so my new family will need to be patient with me while I adjust after going home. I'm really sweet and loving once I feel comfortable! I'm looking for a quiet home with another cat or two for me to bond with and help me settle in. I'm up to date on all my vaccinations, I'm spayed and microchipped, and I tested negative for common feline viruses (FIV/FeLV) upon intake. Do you have room for me in your laid-back home?
