Age: 11 years.

Story: Emily in her younger days was a working cat in a goat barn. There she made friends with other working kitties and many children on the ranch, and she loved her job and life. As her ranching days are behind her, retirement on a cushy spot in your indoor home, where Emily can dream of her glory days, sounds very appealing. Emily’s foster says “This is the greatest cat ever! I had her for two weeks and she was the perfect cat, liked to be petted, brushed, sleep on the bed, was fine with the other family cats. Prefers not to be carried. Startled with a TV but will be great in about any home situation.” Adoption qualifications required.

Fee: $25, includes microchip, neutering and current shots.
