SISSY NEEDS A LOVING HOME

(COASTAL PET RESCUE) For a multiple cat family, you must look no further than Sissy! As long as introductions are made slowly, she adapts well to a big family of feline siblings. Balancing perfectly between high energy and couch potato, she gives the moderately-active owner something to look forward to. She would appreciate open-space to run and enough toys to keep her attention day after day; things that might not be provided by a tiny apartment. To view Sissy and other animals available for adoption, visit http://coastalpetrescue.org/
