Pet Corner: Bandit

Hampden County

Name: Bandit
Location: Springfield: Dakin Humane Society
Breed: Domestic shorthair mix
Gender: Female
Age: 1 year
Color: Black/tan/brown

The first thing you notice about Bandit is that she’s a bobtail! What she lacks in a tail, she more than makes up for in personality and sweetness. This little girl lived indoors with other cats, which she enjoyed very much, but she was fearful of the family dog, so dogs aren’t a good mix for her. Bandit is used to living indoors, and her people described her as friendly with visitors and family, quiet, playful, a lap cat and affectionate. She loves to play with toys and you can meet her at our Springfield Adoption & Education Center.
