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!

I find home remedies fascinating. They usually work so well that the ideas have been passed down from great-grandparents. They don’t cost much, if anything, and they are just downright interesting. We want our gardens to thrive, not just limp along. Farmers did well with no purchased pesticides for hundreds of years, so maybe we can too?
