LISA – A0732115 – aka – A1034986
*SAFE* SAFE 8/4/15 LONG TIME RESIDENT! A staff member writes: Lisa is our resident Golden Girl. This 8-year-old honey bun likes to lay low and just relax. If Lisa had some extra thumbs, you would most likely find her knitting a new scarf for her grandson, doing the daily crossword puzzle in the paper and finishing off the day with a glass of Merlot. Her luscious calico fur and brilliant green eyes are sure to make her a fixture on your lap. Head rubs and gentle pets are one of her main sources of enjoyment. Lisa’s previous owner stated that she has never been around other cats or dogs, so we are unsure of how this laid back feline would react to other animals in the house. One thing we do know for sure is that Lisa is in need of a loving forever home. Come meet this pretty kitty today!
