Gimme Shelter (9/9/15)



Orange County Animal Services has a unique tale in Cinnamon (Animal ID# A314054). This 2-year-old friendly feline first arrived at the shelter six months ago. Shelter staff are shocked she has not yet been adopted. She spent two stints in foster care temporarily recovering from minor illnesses. She now has a clean bill of health and is ready to find a permanent home to call her own. Because of Cinnamon's time in foster care, the shelter is able to know much more about her purrsonality. This tortie girl gets along well with dogs and tolerates the presence of other cats. She can be a little shy when meeting new people, but is quick to warm up, claim a lap and proceed to make "biscuits" while purring. She's a low-maintenance, loving cat who is eager to please. This month all cats and kittens are free to adopt at Orange County Animal Services so there's no better time than now to add a new kitty to your home. Orange County Animal Services is located at 2769 Conroy Road, 407-836-3111,
