Lives with: Amanda Griffiths (Legislative and Communications Director for Rep. Smizik)

About: I adopted Cranberry as an adult cat the weekend before Thanksgiving two years ago, which served as the inspiration for her name! She is about 7 years old now and spends her days watching birds from my windowsill, playing with her favorite string toy, and cuddling on the couch.

Cranberry is a great example of how adult pets can thrive in a new adopted home. I’m so lucky I found her and I encourage everyone visiting an animal shelter to meet some of the older animals looking for a home. You might find your new best friend!
