Adopt Negretta

Negreta is 13 years old. She came to the shelter because her owner went into the hospital and was not coming home.  This sweetheart doesn't have one single tooth in her mouth. She had them all pulled many years ago, but she eats her wet food like a champ and is now a healthy girl. Our hope is that she finds a new home soon. Negreta would make a good companion for a senior who wants a lap cat to watch T.V. with or just hang out with and enjoy the passing seasons.
