Pets of the Week - Sept. 3, 2009

Cleo is an adorable little longhaired Siamese. She was born in mid-April of this year. She has been spayed and fully vaccinated. Cleo found herself at the CCHS shelter as a very tiny baby, so she has spent the vast majority of her short life, being handled by everyone at the shelter. She is sweet and affectionate, and very good with other cats. It won't be required, but interested adopters might want to consider one of the other kittens currently living at the shelter, as a playmate for little Cleo. Kittens tend to be happier when they have other kittens to play with. Anyone interested in adopting Cleo should call Robin at 770/478-7531.
