A Domestic Short Hair named Monica is available for adoption at Best Friends Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah...



Breed: Domestic Short Hair (short coat)
Primary Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Age: Adult
Color: Black
Sex: Female

Monica is very unsure when she first meets people. She's a laid back girl who enjoys spending time lying in the sun. She does really well with other cats, and is totally bonded to her best friend Rachel. They both came from a feral colony in Texas, and they both have vision issues. Monica is missing her left eye, and Rachel is completely blind. We estimate Monica was born in 2009. The girls are looking for a home together. Monica is shy, and she needs someone to give her time to adjust. She responds well to calm voices and slow movements. Once she feels safe, she enjoys being petted.

The girls have a generous sponsor who will pay their adoption fees.
