Pearl is a two to three year old Tortoiseshell Tabby, or Torbie. She arrived at the shelter in mid-summer along with a litter of six little kittens. Because Pearl was nursing, an orphan kitten approximately the same age as hers was added to the brood. She quietly accepted the orphan kitten and eventually tried to nurture him. After a brief adjustment period she became the quintessential mother cat. Pearl is an extraordinary cat, friendly and affectionate she really deserves some special person or family to love her. If you are interested in giving her a home, come see her at HI-Tor, 65 Firemen’s Memorial Dr., Pomona, New York 10970, 845-354-7900. As part of Hi-Tor’s special October cat adoption event, the fee to adopt this sweet kitty is only $60.
