Pet of the Week

Do you have a soft spot for sweet and snuggly seniors? Then I really hope you’ll give me a chance to be your new best friend. My name is Mama Bear, cat No. 83A, and I’m a 14-year-old lady that would love nothing more than to curl up next to you.

I’ve been waiting for a family to cherish ever since I was brought to the shelter back in August. After all these months, all I truly want in life is a family to love and a warm place I can curl up in, especially if that place is in your lap.

So if you have room for a gentle and affectionate cuddle buddy in your home, then stop by and give me a chance to earn a place in your heart today.
