Gimme Shelter (3/16/16)



This pretty kitty is in need of a loving home. Merrie (Animal ID A049280) is a 10-year-old cat who was surrendered to the shelter because her owner could no longer care for her. She is very sweet and would make a great lap cat. Merrie loves to be petted and held, and she will purr as soon as you pet her. She is and will come right up to you and ask for attention. Merrie has a mellow personality and is very affectionate. If you are looking for a calm and friendly kitty who wants nothing more than to be your best friend, consider adopting Merrie. Merrie's adoption fees have been waived because she is considered a senior pet. You can meet her at Orange County Animal Services located at 2769 Conroy Road in Orlando, near the Mall at Millenia. The shelter is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. For more information, please call 407-836-3111 or visit
