Cat for Adoption: Tama
Ed’s note: Tama has found a new home!
Tama, a big orange-and-white tabby, has been at the shelter eight long years. Yes, eight. Tama’s mouth is slightly crooked — which is one of his many charm points. Another is his way of asking you for a cuddle — guaranteed to make you laugh. He does his very best to get human attention, loves people and loves to play. Twelve years old, Tama is in a pen with other cats and has two friends, but, admittedly, does tend to bully weaker cats. After all, it’s been eight long years. Still, a one-cat family may fit this one-cat comedian best. Eight years is too long for anyone, comedian or otherwise, to be in a shelter. Tama desperately needs to get this show on the road and preferably into your home.
