Meet Gracious Gwen!
Gwen is a sweet, 3-year-old grey cat who came to us from less than stellar living conditions and is finally ready to find her forever home. Gwen is still quite young, and although she came in with another cat she is particular about picking the right feline friends. She is very playful and affectionate with people. Gwen’s favourite thing to do is sit up high and watch the world go by. When she’s not up high observing the world around her, she loves to be spending time with her people. Gwen loves to be snuggled, and won’t be afraid to crawl right into your lap. We feel as though Gwen would do best in a home with no other animals.
