Trish is a beautiful 4 1/2-year-old domestic short-haired cat. You’ll find her in our Cattery Room. She’s pretty quiet and likes to be petted. She gets along with other cats, but wouldn’t mind being the queen of her castle. She is one of our longest stays, coming in with babies and watching them all get homes. She’s waiting for her fur-ever family to come find her. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.
