Featured Pet

Edna is extraordinarily pretty with her silver tabby calico coat. She is sweet and friendly, and good with quiet adult cats. She likes to find a lap to lay on and loves attention from people. Edna is good with children and dogs, too. She was found with an injured paw and had to be declawed on one front foot but it doesn't bother her now. Three years old, spayed and vaccinated, Edna is looking forward to a home of her own.
