Pets of the Week - July 23, 2009

Katie is a brown, spotted tabby, and she is approximately 4 to 5 years old. She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current. Katie was found pregnant and living as a stray, by a CCHS volunteer. She was allowed to live as a "guest" in the volunteer's home, until she could safely deliver her six gorgeous babies. That was good while ago, and poor Katie still sits in a cage, waiting for a real family and a permanent home to come along. Katie is overwhelmed by the many, many cats currently residing at the CCHS shelter, so her last couple of years have been spent in the safety and security of a metal cage. CCHS is working hard to place all of the currently caged cats as quickly as possible, Katie is a really sweet girl, who loves people. And she would likely be okay with one or two other cats in the home; she just can't deal with the large numbers that are found in a shelter situation. For adoption information, please call Robin at 770/478-7531. Visit to see other animals available for adoption.
