An adotable cat in Philadelphia, PA
This animal is not at the shelter; she is in foster care. If you are interested in adopting Mimi, please email the foster parent at email@example.com.
Mimi was found under the front stoop of a house in South Philadelphia with kittens in tow. She is a sweet, patient, and nurturing girl who is a about 2 years old. She can be a little shy at first but give it a few minutes and she's all yours. She gets along well with other cats that can give her the space she needs. She has not had a lot of exposure to children or dogs. She comes when she hears her name, and loves to just spend time lounging next to her humans and having her head scratched.
Mimi's kittens have since moved onto their forever homes but she is patiently waiting for the perfect family to come along, will it be with you?
