Playful, curious kitty Carolina seeks special someone


Hi Everyone! 

I am Carolina. I’m a 5-year-old female feline who was brought into the Humane Society Shelter as a stray back in January.

I love a lot of attention, am playful and very curious. I would be happiest in a home with no dogs or small children.

And since I love and need so much attention, I would need to be the only cat.

I like being brushed and definitely enjoy treats! I would make a wonderful and loving companion for that special someone.

Thank you! Love, Carolina 

Dear Carolina:

Thank you for writing. You’ve been there since January? Wow that’s a long time. You definitely stand out in a crowd so I am surprised that no one has taken you away!

Well this is definitely your chance to shine in the spotlight so I wish you the very best of luck.

Yours truly, Winston.
