Beautiful 14-year-old Kallie still has plenty of love to give. A little shy at first, after a couple of minutes of your gentle petting, she will let you know she’s happy with her purring! She is looking for an owner who will show her unconditional love, and give her the opportunity to adjust to her new home. Kallie will be perfectly happy curling up in her favorite spot, quietly keeping you company while you read or watch television. Will you be the one to show Kallie what true kindness looks like?
