Tessie, a six-year-old long-haired tortoise-shell kitty with light green eyes and an impressive puffy mane, is awaiting adoption through the Animal Shelter Assistance Program. This fluffy girl is timid and shy at first but will reward you with enthusiastic head butts once she trusts you. She responds to attention with a sweet “sonic” purr and sometimes even love bites. Tessie kneads her bed with her paws for comfort and is a real cuddler. She is looking for a calm adult home where she can thrive and would prefer being the only cat in your life.
For more information, visit ASAP at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter, 5473 Overpass Rd. Adoption hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4:45 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. For more information, visit www.asapcats.org or call 805-683-3368
