Pet of the Week: Cali the Cat

Cali is a declawed seven year old spayed female calico who was surrendered for being unhappy in her surroundings. She is very affectionate and loves to play fetch, although her idea of fetch is when she tosses toys down from her perch and expects you to return them to her.

Cali is reported to do well with small dogs, some other cats, and even ferrets! She does very well in the communal cat room at the shelter.  Because Cali is declawed, she must be an indoor cat only.
