PAWS Animal Shelter (cat)

Meet Trish, a beautiful 4 1/2-year-old female domestic short-haired cat in our cattery room. She’s pretty quiet and likes to be petted. Trish gets along with the other cats, but she wouldn’t mind being the queen of her castle. She’s been here at the shelter for two-and-a-half years, came in with babies and watched them all find homes. She is waiting for her fur-ever family to come find her. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccines. Come meet her today.
