There’s no denying it; Tara is a big girl. She’s got a fairly large frame for a female, but she’s definitely on the chunky side. She’s very cute, too—all black with just a few white hairs on her chest, and big yellow-green eyes. We estimate that she’s about 5 years old (as of 1/09).

Tara was surrendered to a shelter because her previous owner could no longer afford to care for her, a situation all too common these days. Luckily, a space opened up here, and we were pleased to be able to take her. She’s a gentle, good-natured girl who really does seem to like people, although she can be a bit on the shy side at times. An added plus: Tara seems very comfortable around other cats.

If you’ve been looking for a little feline companionship, won’t you help provide a happy ending to Tara’s story?
