Hello Cat Lovers! My name is Melissa. I am a medium sized, long hair, Tortie Cat. I came to the Humane Society several weeks ago as a stray. I came down with a terrible cold, and I had to go to a foster home to recover. I am feeling much better now, and I am finally ready to be adopted! My feline-ality type is a “Personal Assistant.” I would love to help you will all sorts of tasks, like typing on the computer, or tasting your dinner creations. I’m very sweet, loving, and easy to get along with. I am one of HSPPR “Catemy Award” winners so my adoption fee is only $20! My adoption fee still includes a free vet exam, vaccinations, and one month of pet health insurance. A $15.00 license is required for city residents. Please come visit me and all of my friends at the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, 610 Abbott Lane, Colorado Springs, CO 80905. Click HERE for directions.
