My story

Iris is a beautiful 6 month old Torbie cat! She is currently at our Vet's office being spayed and also for an eye enucleation.(removal) Her eye was damaged when we found her and could not be saved. Iris is undergoing her antibiotic treatment and observation.
She needs a quiet Foster home to prepare her for adoption. Iris is obsessed with her laser pointer! Her photo was taken sitting in the window at our retail location. More to follow soon.
Please let us know if you can help with this little beauty.
