Beautiful, independent Miley! Available!

Click here to see a video feature of adoptable Miley! She is currently residing in one of our Cat Colony Rooms in our Cat Adoption Room!

Introducing beautiful, independent Miley! This gorgeous spayed female is 6 years old! Miley has been at our shelter over a year! Gorgeous Miley would thrive best in a quiet home with lots of freedom and room to roam. Quite simply a few special cozy spots to call her very own are all she is asking for! A home with adult humans would be ideal for this girl! Staff feels she might do okay with a feline sibling as long as they understand her love of being an independent girl! Purrhaps a feline sibling who is just as mature and independent as purrty Miley might be a good match (no silly kitten antics for this girl). Here at our shelter staff has found that Miley is not so fond of those silly, wiggly jiggly canine creatures. Please consider adding this feline beauty to your heart and home! She truly deserves her second chance!
