Pet of the week: July 31 - Humane Society of West Alabama: This is Kathy, a short-haired young lady with gray and brown tabby markings and white feet, about 1 year old. She’s very loving and gets along well with other cats. Kathy had a rough start, and was found injured in a parking lot. Judging by her wounds, the vet personnel believed she was thrown or tossed from a moving vehicle. She had cuts and scrapes, and a minor limp in her back leg. Kathy only had a gash on her left eye, a scrape to the left of her nose and some scrapes on her paws. No wounds were infected, and she healed quickly. She is now busy playing with volunteers and other cats. She even likes to snuggle during naptime. Kathy is quite a character. Call or email to ask about this brave and lucky young girl. Negative for FIV and FeLK and current on vaccinations. Kathy has been spayed. 13634
