    Adopt Me!

    Josie is a gorgeous girl with sleepy eyes and a cute patch of gray under her chin. You will often find her curled up in a blanket in the sun, snuggling with one of her Gifford roommates or on her favorite perch. She is a very mellow girl who would prefer to watch while others run around the room! She loves to have her thick, beautiful fur brushed and will relax and close her eyes in contentment. She would do best in a home that understands her preference is to nap and observe, and that she most likely would not be up for any rigorous, high energy play. Josie would do fine as an only cat so she can get lots of pets from her person! If you have any questions regarding this cat please feel free to get in touch with the shelter. Get the application HERE.
