Xena has been at the shelter long enough that this is now her second time being featured as Pet of the Week. She’s really hoping that this will finally be the time that she gets adopted.

Xena is a spayed female orange tabby, surrendered for expressing her dislike for sharing her family with other cats.

She enjoys being petted and would prefer to do without the presence of children, but could probably learn to live with other felines if given time to adjust. Shelter staff and volunteers think that she can probably rapidly deal with any “annoying” canines in the household. too.
