PET OF THE WEEK is CRICKETT
Crickett is the ticket for a cat who has everything to offer! Although smaller in stature, this unique two-year old tabby beauty makes up big in personality. She was a beloved pet of an owner who moved away, and it's obvious for the moment you meet her, she adores the company of her people friends. She also loves the outdoors and was known to come inside a few times each day. Crickett is smart, inquisitive, and is known to leave inodoor furniture and countertops alone. She enjoys to be pet and is quite affectionate once she warms up to you. Crickett would prefer to be your only cat companion of the home. She is updated on all her vaccinations, micro-shipped and spayed. Come meet Cricket today! She is waiting patiently at the shelter, where her dreams of a happy home are as hopeful as her heart is open...ready to receive the love she deserves again.
