WICC Pet of The Week

WICC Pet of The Week

Meet Kriesty, a beautiful 6 year old tabby. If you’re a sucker for green eyes, this girl is for you. She’s an independent cat with low energy and beautiful house manners who has been a loved indoor cat with a single owner her whole life. We think she would prefer to be sole companion to a person or a couple, unbothered by the comings and goings of kids and other pets. She is opinionated on what kind of attention she receives—she’ll accept face and chin scratches forever, but prefers not to have her lower back ruffled. Because she is a bit particular we think she is best suited to a family with previous cat experience who will know how to read her signals.

To apply to meet her or to learn more about her and our other adoptable pets please visit us online at cthumane.org.
