Cat of the Week: Olive [video]

URGENT- Just as olives are the perfect complement to many foods and drinks, this girl is surely the missing ingredient in your family!

Olive is a petite 6- to 12-month-old gal who arrived at the shelter as a stray. This little girl is an adorable mostly-white cat with a few well-placed splashes of dusty grey. Olive is a gentle and well-mannered girl who will politely nudge your hand in order to receive a few head rubs!

Olive is just as sweet as she is adorable. Even though she’s feeling under the weather with a cold, Olive is still as affectionate and loving as ever. Ever the gracious girl, Olive is calm and demure, never pushy or demanding. Add some flavor to your life and adopt sweet Olive today!

Olive is a member of the Kneady Cats Club, so she has her very own volunteer tending to her every whim. If you’re interested in learning more about her or how to meet her, contact Lindsi at always8bball AT
