Pet of the Week: Missy

Hi, my name is Missy and I am 10 years young. I am kind of a shy girl. If you come to the adoption room to meet me, you'll probably find me curled up in a kitty cave because I feel safe there. But make no mistake, I LOVE attention! Once I get to know you, you can give me lots of pets and I'll bump my head against your hand and start kneading the blankets with my paws. I am an affectionate girl looking for a caring, patient owner who's looking for a gentle, loving feline companion to share the couch. Do you have a forever home for me?
Age: 10 years Sex: SF
