katya, 4 years, female

Her foster states it best: "There are two sides to Katya - love and adorableness." This cat lives for attention and affection and and returns the love twice over; not only does she love to cuddle, but she enjoys interacting with her humans through lots of play time as well.

Be prepared to have a best friend from the moment you walk in the door to the second your head hits the pillow at night. Katya is drawn to warm laps and body heat, and she has no problem getting to know guests quickly if it means potential pets!

She developed a nervous grooming habit in the shelter, but we know with time and a loving place to call her own, Katya will grow her beautiful fur back for good. If you're looking for a cat who appreciates and reciprocates friendship, Katya may be the one for you.

Katya is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, negative for FIV/FeLV, and $75 to adopt.
