My name is Maisy but you may as well call me your new best friend. I can’t even begin to tell you what it’s like to be a senior cat in a sea of young cats and kittens. At 13 years old I realize I can’t offer my new human the playful spirit and growing stages that a kitten can, but I don’t think that makes me any less valuable or deserving. I would be willing to share my next home with other cats and children, but dogs might be too much for me (unless they, too, are in their golden years). Are you the one who will be my hero?
