November Cat of the Month, Part Two!

Part Two!
Since Rosey was adopted, we thought we'd give another kitty
a second chance at having a safe and loving forever home.

Hello!
My Name Is Lady...

I am a rescue from CCSPCA
and I'm a healthy, fully vetted
14 years young senior kitty.
I'm extremely lovable & like to cuddle!
My owner died and I'd really like to
find another home for the holidays.
If you're a senior too, maybe we could live together?
I'd like a quiet place to call home,
is that with you?
 
If you are interested in Lady:  Contact Us
Thank you.

Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Listeria infection can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.

Animals ill with Listeria will display symptoms similar to those seen in humans.

People who have concerns about whether their pet has symptoms associated with Listeria infection should contact their veterinarian.
