Pet of the Week: Shady the Cat!

Mass Appeal

In this week’s Pet of the Week, we introduce you to 10 year old Shady, a Domestic Shorthair Mix who is looking for her forever home! Lee Chambers visited the show to talk about Shady, along with other events happening at Dakin!

Name:  Shady

Location:  Springfield

Breed: Domestic short hair mix

Gender: Female

Age:  10 years


Shady is a lovely, mature kitty who would be an ideal companion for a single person.  Her previous person passed away, so she was brought to Dakin in Springfield.  Shady needs to be your “one and only” pet, because she lived with other pets in the past and it wasn’t a good mix for her.  She’s the type of kitty who may not jump up on your lap, but she’ll be happy to snuggle against you on the couch for some quality time.  Shady has some medical issues that our adoption counselors can explain.  Come meet this sweet kitty at our Springfield location.
