Vera: A Success Story
Selma is a large 8-year old female with an even bigger heart. Though she may be a little overweight, she's eighteen pounds of love. This long-haired black cat has a little trouble jumping pretty much anywhere vertical, but loves to play nonetheless! She purrs nonstop and gives headbutts aplenty whenever you pet or brush her. She's a lazy, affectionate kitty who loves spending her time curled up next to you! Selma also loves playing with string toys and chasing toy mice, so she should easily lose weight as long as her diet is controlled. Selma isn't a fan of other animals, so she wants to be the only pet. She loves kids though, and would make a great family cat!Please note that Selma is on a special prescription diet. Get the application HERE.
