Cat of the Week: Princess

Hi, I’m Princess and I sit all day in this tower wondering when my prince will come.

I guess I’m a little self-conscious because of this big black spot on my nose, but people around me call it a “beauty mark.”

I had a prince at one point, but he got really sick. He said to me that he didn’t want to take me to this scary place, but he couldn’t care for me the way he once did. Therefore, I still have hope that someone is out there for me. Are you that person? I’m only 3 years old and would love to spend the best part of my life with a companion.

It’s ok here, but I can’t get comfortable in this little space. The floor is cold and they have these wires that I can’t stick my face out of – only my little paw to shake your hand. If we could fly away together, I promise I would never leave your side.

The best thing is, for the next few weeks, I’m only $1. That means with the extra money you can buy me a diamond ring, or maybe just a sparkly collar.
