SAFE 1/28/17 I was found wandering a hallway and now I’m making my way into YOUR heart and hopefully new home! A kind stranger found me and brought me into her home for a week where I got to meet her dog and cat friend…I was nervous around my kitty friend at first but later felt relaxed, but the dog scared me and I would need to hide.
I need some major TLC, won’t you help me today?

Allowed all handling; started purring and rolling over playfully while being pet. Delightful, a lovely companion cat.
