Jemmy has had a rough start to her life. Having been abandoned at a different animal shelter, her future was just as much a mystery as her past. But we're happy to report her present is looking bright at the Old City Adoption Center. She is a quiet girl who enjoys the company of other quiet cats or respectful cats who won't overwhelm her. She enjoys head rubs and the occasional toy. She would thrive in a quiet home with slightly older children so she can come out of her shell at her own pace and brighten your day.
Name: Jemmy Age: 6-10 years old Reason for surrender: Abandoned at shelter Animal ID#: A31529133
