It's way too hot. You crave icy cool and deserve a reward. Think of Camellia as your own personal present for Christmas in July. Don't even try to resist this snowy white beauty. Camellia is young, athletic, curious, and highly affectionate. She is also deaf — a minor modification for caretakers who may wish to teach this kitty visual cues with yummy treats. Less than a year of age, Camellia suddenly showed up on a doorstep recently. And with rescuers at full cat-pacity, adoption fees are now reduced! Camellia is a stunning treasure waiting to move in with a true forever family. She comes fully vaccinated, spayed, microchipped and more from StFrancisRescue.org.
