Miss Betty came to us as a pregnant stray. She is now spayed and has had one rabies shot that is supposed to be good for 2 years, I think. She tolerates other cats barely. Not aggressive but definitely prefers to be with humans or on her own. She is fully litterbox trained. No known health issues. Does not seem to be a picky eater. She also loves to purr and give little chirpy meows. Age is probably no more than 2 years.
