Featured Furry: Virginia

Last week's featured Waif was adopted on the following Saturday, so I hope luck continues this week and the same thing happens for Miss Virginia. Every time Mom sees her, she thinks of the Train song "Meet Virginia". Do you know what song I'm talking about?

She doesn't own a dress
Her hair is always a mess
If you catch her stealin'
She won't confess
She's beautiful.

Other than the part about her hair always being a mess and stealing, the first verse of that song really fits. Virginia is beautiful. Of course a proper ladycat like her would never steal, she probably wouldn't even sneak extra treats if she had the opportunity. That wouldn't be very ladylike. Virginia is quite the lady. She likes to be petted, but only for a little while. When she's had enough, she lets you know. Also, she's not a lap cat, but is quite happy to sit next to you and have you talk to her.

Virginia has been at Wayside Waifs for a few months now. The volunteers there don't know why she hasn't been adopted yet. She really doesn't have that many demands.
  • She would prefer to be in a quiet home without children.
  • She gets along with most of the other kitties at Wayside, so another cat in the home would probably be okay.
  • She likes to play with ribbon toys.
The volunteers are doing their best to get her adopted by doing things like decorating her kennel and wearing buttons with her picture on them. She's an older lady at 8 years old, but I think that's a benefit! At this age, she's a cat who knows who she is and what she wants.

I would love it if you would help to spread the word about Virginia! She's a great gal who needs to have a life outside of the shelter.

Meet Virginia
I can't wait to
Meet Virginia
