Cat of the Week: Ginger in DC

Ginger, 14-y-old calico cat available for adoption through Humane Rescue AllianceEach 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.

Today we’re introducing Ginger, a 14-year-old declawed lady who is just beautiful.  Look at the coloring on her back! Ginger is described as being very mellow. She enjoys lounging in bed for much of the day, as any self-respecting senior cat does. Ginger’s family moved and could not take her with them, so she had to go to the shelter. She enjoys being petted, and she loves having a person to sleep next to at night.
