Saki - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Cat

Adopted from Washington City Animal Shelter, Washington, UT.

We wanted another cat, so I spent a few weeks online trying to decide what type of cat to add to our family. We almost bought a kitten from a breeder, but I'm so glad we didn't. I saw Saki online and kept going back to her picture. She was a stray and looked a little rough. We went to our local shelter to meet her, and it was love at first sight! She had a really bad cold when we adopted her; she couldn't even breathe out her nose. I'm so glad we didn't let that stop us from adopting her. One week later she was fine and one of the best cats I have ever had! She is so loving and can be quite the comedian. She likes to climb on top of our very tall headboard and then dive bomb us while we are watching tv. She follows us everywhere and will come when you call her; my other cat just looks at you like "as if I'd actually come to you when I'm clearly taking a nap." My husband has taught her to catch a ball and she even plays fetch. Saki also likes to play tag. She will chase you and then jump up and hit your legs. She is more playful than my two dogs. Adopting from a shelter is the best way to get a new pet!
