Annie is a 2-year-old, black-and-white short-haired cat with light green eyes. Since she has a pink nose and white ears, she will need to live indoors only. Initially she is shy, but if you are slow and calm with her, she will warm up to you and reward you with head butts and sweet love nibbles, flipping on her back to show off her lovely white belly and large white bunny feet. Annie particularly enjoys gentle pets on the bridge of her nose and likes to hide her face in your hand. She gets along with other cats and would prefer an adult home.
The following is included in the adoption fee at ASAP: spay or neuter surgery, flea treatment, vaccinations, microchipping, health evaluation, including testing for feline leukemia (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). Cats thought to be 10 years or older receive a full blood panel evaluation, thus assuring that the cat is indeed healthy and adoptable; medical and drug coverage through ASAP’s vet for two weeks beyond adoption, if necessary; temperament evaluation; and cat carrier (you can save the county money by bringing your own).
Animal Shelter Assistance Program (ASAP) is a volunteer-based, nonprofit organization that takes care of the cats and kittens at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter. ASAP provides humane care for these animals and works to eliminate the practice of euthanizing them for reasons other than serious health or behavior problems.
