Friendly and loving, 1-year-old Jennifer loves sweet talk and attention.

This loving cat is waiting to meet you, and she’s available at the shelter.



Attractive and friendly, our American longhair, dilute calico girl is dressed in colors of creamy gray, palest orange and white. Her huge hazel eyes captivate and mesmerize; one ear has a small, perhaps genetic, tuck and it may give her the appearance of being serious — but it’s just the opposite. At 3 years old, this cat wants so much to have human love and interaction, she strives hard for attention by emitting little mews. When given the love, care and permanency of a good forever home, she will blossom into a loving devoted friend, pet and companion.

For more information, visit Precious’ ID is No. 1449.

Come in and meet this remarkable cat – she’s available at the shelter.
