Irby

Cat
Looks Like: Domestic Short Hair (short coat)
Age: Adult
Color: Black and White
Sex: Female


Irby enjoys being petted, but on her own terms. And she's not a fan of other cats; she will not hesitate to chase away any that enter her personal bubble. Born in 2015, Irby came from a California animal shelter. She is on medication for a history of cystitis. While Irby's behavioral problems are still a work in progress, she has progressed noticeably since her arrival. She enjoys short bouts of head scratches and will let you know when to stop. She also now takes her daily medication in a baby food squirt without complaint, which was not considered an option when she first arrived. If you appreciate cattitude, Irby is the sassy girl for you!
