Pet of the Week


The world doesn't always work in black and white (although Trixie's coat does), but there's no gray area when it comes to falling in love with this cat! Trixie came to us at 9 years old, and so we can forgive her for being a little shy at first; after all, her whole life has been turned upside down. But despite all of that, Trixie is a gentle, affectionate cat who loves a little affection from someone special, and she has a big heart to share with the person who takes her home and puts a little "normal" back into her world. Can you help her out with that? Come meet her at our Adoption Center today! Call 859.873.5491 to find out more about her.
