PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

She recently went through surgery for her back legs (a double patella) which she is recovering wonderfully from. She gets along great with the other cats and likes to be around people.

Margo was rescued from a puppy mill, but is a social butterfly and loves everyone she sees. She gets along with other dogs and will be cat tested if needed. Margo needs patience with house training, but would most likely catch on quickly. She has a nice temperament and loves to give kisses and hugs. Margo is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations: Da2PPL, Bivalent Flu, Bordetella and Rabies. Also, she has been heart worm tested negative as well as dewormed. Margo is current on flea, tick, and heart worm prevention.
