You and Mrs. Jones really could have a thing going on. This 1-year old kitty loves being held and giving kisses. In a former environment, Mrs. Jones used to play with children, and she’s currently being fostered with dogs. She’d prefer to be an “only” cat but would likely get along fine with another laid back feline. Know this for certain: you’ll never be lonely with Mrs. Jones! Adopt her fully vaccinated, spayed, microchipped and more from StFrancisRescue.org. Find them on Facebook @StFrancisAnimalRescue.
