Eindy is a 4-year-old, black and white domestic medium-hair. She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current. Eindy is a solitary cat, choosing quiet, out-of-the-way places where she can nap her days away. Eindy does not like other cats, so most of her three years at the Clayton County Humane Society shelter have been spent in a cage. For more information call the Humane Society at (770) 471-9436. Visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see other animals available for adoption.
