Female | 7 years | Domestic Shorthair • Mix


Name: Sookie

Age: 7 years (Senior)

Weight (approx.): ~ 12 lbs

Personality: Hi there! My name is SOOKIE and I am cute like a COOKIE! I start out a little shy and coy but give me a moment to peek at you and I will stretch and come right over to get head scratches. My energy is calm and content and after getting some affection I love to chow down on some food and do some happy sprawls and body wiggles around on the floor. When I'm happy and feeling loved my tail waves all around like a dog! Come and down to meet me. Can't wait to come home with you!

Medical History: I appear to be a healthy cat at this time, however I look forward to meeting my regular vet soon after adoption. I was a bit stressed in my previous home, so there were a few times I didn't feel comfortable or safe enough to use my litter box. I haven't had any issues at the shelter, though, and I know I'll do well with a slow intro to a low stress home.

Adoption Fee: $30 + tax
