This friendly, calm, buff colored tabby gal was born around May 2013. Olga talks to you if you are late for mealtime. She lets you hold her or will lap sit for a short while. Olga enjoys brushing, toy mice and balls, as well as interactive wand toys. Olga usually greets you at the door. She gets along with respectful kids, some cats, hasn't met dogs, and is OK with new folks after sizing them up.

All pets have been vet checked, wormed, had shots updated, have a micro ID implanted, checked for friendly dispositions and neutered/spayed, if possible. Adoption fees are $175 and up for cats and $200 and up for dogs. If you can give one a home, call the Carver Scott Humane Society at 952-368-3553.

Spot is a tabby mix female, almost 4 years old, who is a lovely gal! She loves attention as well as play, but will let you know when she’s had enough. She doesn’t enjoy being held, so she likely would not do well in a home with younger children, although she does well with other cats and dogs. She has had a complete wellness exam, is spayed, microchipped, tested negative for feline leukemia/FIV, and is updated on vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $150 which includes a free wellness exam within seven days of adoption. Bring a spot of sunshine into your forever home with this lovely gal!
