PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Meet Faith! She has been at the shelter for three years now. She is about 5 years old and while she loves attention she’d rather not be picked up. Faith has some scar tissue in her throat that causes her to purr in a very unique way. One of the ladies at the shelter says, “that purr of Faith’s could put me right to sleep.” Come by and fall in love with Faith. She goes to her new home spayed and all up to date on her vaccinations.
