Pet of the Week: Princess the Cat

Princess is a four-year-old spayed, female, with a lovely, black medium-length, fluffy coat and striking, green eyes. Her photo doesn’t do her beautiful looks justice! She is said to be a Maine Coon mix. While a largish cat, she is not a large as most Maine Coons.

She loves cuddling, and is said to be good with other cats (she lived with three other kitties), dogs, adults and kids. She is an indoor kitty, surrendered due to a family move and available after vetting.
