Shelter Pet of the Day – North Carolina

Submitted by reader April who writes:

My name is Miss Priss. I am about a year young beautiful calico (as you can see below!). My foster mommy rescued me out of what they call a “high-kill, gassing animal control shelter”. Sounds bad to me but it wasn’t my fault! I was just out walking, got lost and ended up in that horrible place!

I am a very quiet & sweet natured girl. My favorite thing is sitting at your feet while you talk to me. I cock my head to the side purr and “make biscuits” during a conversation. I really try to understand what you’re saying! I would make a GREAT companion for someone looking for a lap cat that loves to be stroked. Perhaps someone retired or someone that works from home? I just love to be around people! I don’t have to be the only cat as long as I get plenty of love. I’m even learning how wonderful it feels to be brushed and to play with catnip mice. C’mon! Love me! All this happiness and joy can be ALL YOURS! I’m Sweet. Pettable. Purring. Social. Soft. Adorable. What more could you ask for? I have plenty of love to go around! I’m all up to date on my vaccinations and I’m already spayed & microchipped. I have a “cauliflower ear” from an old ear infection that went un-checked. The ear is just fine now and my folded ear just makes me cuter!

So, let’s cut to the chase. I’m Priss and what I’ve got is bottomless love. And what I’ve got, you’ve got, if you just take me home. Now, wasn’t that simple?

Please email my foster Mom at or call 704-618-7528

I love this picture.

  1. What a beautiful cat girl! I’m glad that your foster mom got you out of that horrid place. It won’t be long before someone falls in love with you, for sure.

  2. As I’ve said before, there’s always room for one more. Surely there’s someone with a bigger heart than one, two or three kitties at home. People are always surprised when they bring home another kitty & they blend right in.

    Even if you THINK your kitties at home wouldn’t accept another feline friend, try it & be surprised. You can always return her & start over.

    Having the large & indoor dogs here would be too stressful for her to be happy, for the first period of adjustment anyway. But I can & will give a home to more cats when necessary & they always adapt & become happy well adjusted family.
