Special
Needs
I'm Cherish, Adopt Me!
Domestic Shorthair Mix | Young | Female

One-year-old Cherish is a gorgeous orange tabby teenager with a boundless thirst for adventure. When it comes to climbing anything that's vertical, she is fearless, and there is nothing she doesn't enjoy exploring. This confident lady is full of enthusiasm and energy and you'll get plenty of laughs out of watching her silly antics when she finds some cat toys to toss around. When she finally needs some downtime, she enjoys hanging with her people for some good petting. She is bonded to her handsome orange brother Treasure, and the two need to be adopted together to share their forever home. Once you see them, you won't be able to resist. Cherish's adoption fee has been prepaid by a generous donor.

Cherish's adopter must be at least 18 years old with valid-state issued identification. ARF encourages family members to participate in the adoption process, especially children. Please visit ARF's web site for information on adoption and to view more great cats.
