SAFE 8/17/18 A volunteer writes: Elvis is a plus-sized pussycat, weighing in at 18 pounds! She’s black and white like a panda, and has beautiful greenish-yellow eyes. I opened the door to Elvis’ condo and was she happy! She head butted me like there was no tomorrow. Super affectionate and purring, she graced me with a kitty kiss! (Love my kitty kisses.) I offered Elvis a feather toy and she quickly pounced on it. She proceeded to have a playfest. I was surprised at how fast this big gal moved–and was she playful! Are you looking for a new best friend? Elvis is waiting for you.
