Hello, friends. My name is Two. Yes, just like the number. My owner passed away, and I’m sad but hopeful that I will find a new home. I’m a very loving and gentle cat who is 5 years old. I’m up to date on all of my vaccinations, neutered and litter-box trained. I have a laid-back and lovable disposition. The perfect day for me would involve a couple hours of sun bathing, playing with my favorite mouse toy and getting loved on by my human. I used to live in a home with other cats and was previously an indoor/outdoor cat. Please come and visit me at the shelter!
