Cats of the Week: Giselle in Washington, DC

Each week in this space, we feature a senior cat in need of adoption or sponsorship. Please remember all the older cats in shelters. They make great companions, and unlike kittens, they (probably) won’t climb the curtains! Adopt a senior cat, and help him or her enjoy the best years of their life.

Giselle, a calico cat in need of adoption at Humane Rescue Alliance

Today we introduce you to the lovely Giselle, who we’re sure would be so thankful for a forever home. As you can see, Giselle has beautiful coloring (not that I’m biased in favor of calicos or anything!). She is about 10 years old, and she was found on the streets of Washington, DC. She may have had it kind of rough as a homeless street cat, and she needed some special care from the kind staff at the Humane Rescue Alliance. But now she’s all set for a new home. Maybe you’ve got a nice, warm spot in your home where a cat can curl up and be safe and content and know that she is loved? Yes? Then check out Giselle!
