Pet of the Week: Vixey

Meet Vixey, a young black Domestic Short Hair female available for adoption locally.

Here is what her friends at Little Buddies Adoption and Humane Society have to say:

A sweet kitten. She has really come out of her shell in the last few weeks.

She came to Little Buddies a painfully shy little girl. It could be thanks to the charm of her fellow foster, Sleeve, or just growing up a bit.

She is much playful and very active. She enjoys running, leaping and pouncing her foster mate as well as simply entertaining herself with a toy.

She is not one to be held but she is affectionate — just on her terms — after play time.

Vixey has an absolutely stunning, shiny black coat (these photos do not capture it). It is no wonder black cats have been revered for centuries around the world.

Are you and Vixey a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.
