"If you can't already tell that fetch is my favorite game by the ball in my mouth, then I don't know what you are thinking. I think I'm a fantastic girl with a heart of gold who really wants a home before the Christmas holiday. I would really love if you come and sweep me off my paws and give me a comfy couch to lounge on, forever!"

"Please don't let my age fool you; cats live for a long time! I will be your best calm cat companion who will love to lounge around my new home and beg for attention when I want it!
