Adoptable Pet of the Week: Minuet

on December 12, 2013

Our adoptable pet of the week is a beautiful and gentle 7-year-old dilute calico cat named Minuet.

While seven may sound old, it’s worth remembering that indoor-only kitties can live to be as old as 20, which means that Minuet is likely years away from retirement!

This charming girl may need a day or two to settle into a new home, but once she feels safe, she’s very easy-to-please. She is an excellent lap cat, whose petite size allows her to comfortably snuggle up on laps of all sizes. Minuet isn’t a fan of noisy places and will do best in a quiet home without young children.

Minuet has been spayed, microchipped, is current on her vaccinations and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. A generous person has sponsored Minuet, which means she is FREE to adopt to a qualified guardian. To adopt, all household members must meet with Minuet whether family or roommates.
