MYRTLE is an approximately
6-year-old Domestic Longhair cat
looking for her forever home! This
friendly cat arrived as a stray, so
we don’t know anything about
her past. Myrtle has been friendly
since her arrival, but she can get
over-stimulated easily so it will
be important to watch her body
language. Myrtle enjoys getting
brushed, which she will need
regularly with her long fur.
Pumpkin decorating, stories
and games for ages birth to 11.
