Meet our Pet of the Week Squirt. She's a 2-year-old domestic shorthair who is up for adoption at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.
Here's a special message from Squirt:
"Squirt is my name and investigating is my game! I can't really tell you why I ended up here, but I wasn't too happy about it at first. I hissed a little and tried to make everyone think I was tough, but I think I was really just a scaredy cat. I often find myself sitting quite majestically checking out the goings on. I'm always on the lookout for a nice person to take me home. But it does take me a little bit of time to get to know you. I guess I still have a little bit of scaredy cat in me with new things. I'm very comfortable around other cats and really enjoy their company, so I'd love a forever home where I could have a feline companion to rely on. Would you be willing to give me a nice home?"
