Pets of the Week

Faith is a gray tabby domestic shorthair. She is about 1 1/2 years old, and has been spayed. All vaccinations are current. Faith was abandoned at the door of Clayton County Humane Society, hungry and pregnant. She is a quiet, solitary cat. She is affectionate and loving with people, but frightened of other cats. She will do best as an "only cat." For more information, call the Humane Society at (770) 471-9436. Visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see more animals available for adoption.

You have no taste, just like the lettuce you eat.
