Briethecat

I’m excited it’s Friday, how about you? If you are ready to add in some fun critter events to the schedule, here you go! This week’s adoptable is sweet little 3 year old domestic short hair Brie. According to her profile she is wonderfully sweet and purrs endlessly. Sounds like a great cat to me and she is so interesting looking to boot! You can visit her at the Fort Collins Cat Rescue/Spay & Neuter Clinic. and she is current on all her shots.
