Thelma (first photo) is 16. This gentle, kind kitty came to us after being involved in a hoarding situation. Her owner passed away and she was sent to live with her owner’s sister before she was surrendered. She was stressed at the shelter, but loves her purple Kong toy. She loves to carry it around on her back and will sometimes play with it like a kitten! She is so happy and pleasant, and enjoys all of the attention humans give her. She is spayed, current on core vaccinations, treated for internal and external parasites, microchipped, and ready to be adopted. We are holding out hope that her forever family is on its way! Meet Thelma here.
