Astrid can be a star

Tuesday, Jul. 29, 2014

Meet Astrid, a beautiful calico looking for a new loving home. Her owner fell on hard times and was evicted and we took his cats into foster care to keep them out of the shelter. Astrid is a sweet, friendly 11 year old. She likes being in your lap and having her fur brushed. She's spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, friendly and litterbox trained. Because of her age, we had a complete blood test done and everything came back fine including testing negative for Feline Leukemia and FIV. The adoption fee is only $40. She's available for adoption at the Weatherford PetSmart. Please bring a cat carrier with you. For their safety, all adopted cats must leave in a cat carrier.
