Pet of the Week

MandrinCute little Mandrin. She poses with such sweetness just waiting to be petted. And Mandrin is a kitty who sure likes to be petted. You can stroke her from the top of her head to the tip of her tail; that makes her happy. Her green eyes are giant-size, alert and on the lookout for comfort hands from humans for the rubs they can offer. She’s apprehensive about being held but time and environment may change that. Mandrin is a small cat, senior in age at 13 years and already spayed. She’s a sweet and gentle cat and very pretty with her white bib and white accents on her nose and muzzle. She is a short-legged kitty with a little roundness to her middle. If she were a dog, she’d have the body of a Corgi. Mandrin is a kitty who appreciates being petted and loved on and would make a great little lap companion. Right now, she is in the cat cubby; room hanging out with a few other cats. She’s fond of people and the love they offer but doesn’t care to interact with the other cats too much. She appreciates the ability to room about and discover the new space and is really opening up in personality now that she’s in a room instead of a cage. She’s quickly becoming a volunteer’s favorite. Check out cute Mandrin in the cat cubby.

Contact the shelter about her special adoption price.
