Pets of the Week - Aug. 28, 2008

Precious little Eve is domestic shorthair, braided tabby. She is a little over a year old, and she has been spayed and fully vaccinated. Eve became a member of the CCHS family when someone decided to use the shelter's fenced-in yard as a "night deposit drop". The 13 foot fence is topped with barbed wire which could easily have ended little Eve's life. She has certainly proved that she is a tough little survivor, in the truest sense of the word! This adorable little lady has a great, outgoing personality. She gets along well with everyone, including the many other cats at the CCHS shelter. For more information, please call Robin at 770/478-7531.
