Our featured pet this week is Martini Olive, a beautiful, tiger striped domestic shorthair/mix cat. Her magical, golden eyes will mesmerize you along with her thick and luxurious coat. She is a very laid back kitty, but don't let that fool you - she really loves attention. She gets along with other cats and would make an excellent companion for anyone who wants to listen to her purrs and meows. You might also be interested in her partner Jack a grey and white Tabby and patchwork cat, who has been her roommate for several years. They are the best of friends and would make a wonderful pair of new family members to the right home. Martini Olive and Jack are both up to date with routine shots and veterinary care.
