Meet Tuiy

AGE: Tuiy is a 1½-year-old, elegant white lady cat with a little charcoal black on her ears and nose, and black lipstick. 

PERSONALITY: She was originally found as a stray, living under a building, and once rescued was friendly, talkative and cuddly with her people, but didn’t get along with the resident cat and dog, so her owners surrendered her.  

HIGHLIGHTS: At the shelter Tuiy is in a free-roaming room and after slow introductions, hasn’t had any problem with the other cats.  Sometimes she shows a little bit of catitude—but as the queen reigning from the highest perch in Whiskerville, she probably thinks that’s her prerogative.  Are you the new best friend Tuiy has been looking for?

AVAILABLE: At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S Pacific Hwy, Phoenix.  Open 11am to 4 pm Tuesday through Friday, and noon to 4pm weekends.

COST: Tuiy’s adoption fee only is $50 and includes a free wellness visit at a local veterinarian office. Tuiy is spayed.
