Humane Society Pet of the Week

Name: Aphrodite

Age: 3 ½ years

Color: White/gray

Breed: Domestic Shorthair

Gender: Female

Spayed: Yes

Why she is special: Aphrodite is a wonderful girl looking for her forever home! She was transferred from another shelter, so her history is a bit of a mystery. Aphrodite is outgoing, curious, very affectionate and super cute! She loves being around people and getting snuggles! She really needs a home where she will be treated as part of the family and receive lots of love and attention.

Aphrodite is a bit of a special needs cat. When she first arrived she was very sick with an upper respiratory infection. She spent a long time on medication to get her feeling better. Now she feels great but still has the occasional sneeze. This may get better in a home environment or this may end up just being normal for her. Some additional veterinary care may be needed. But we know that a special person or some special people will see what an awesome cat she is. Aphrodite is an easy girl to please — all she wants is a home to call her own where she can be your best friend. You could be the one to give her the forever family she deserves!!!

Cost: $45
