SAFE 5/7/17 — 8 year old TIGER lost her home when owner died. Came in with housemate Kitty.
These two senior kitties were surrendered because their previous owner passed away, and they’re hoping to find placement in a relaxing, loving retirement home together! While Tiger is quite a social lady, Kitty needs a little time to warm up to new people (and did allow petting today)! Tiger currently has conjunctivitis and Kitty has hyperthyroidism.
