Pets of the Week Barrette the Cat & Princess Pittie Amanda
My name is Barrette but I'm cute as a button! I love to play almost as much as I love to sunbathe in a big window. I don't mind curling up next to the other cats either. I know I'd be perfect for any home in need of a happy kitty.
Before I go home, I will be spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. During my stay at spcaLA, I participated in the HEAL Program to help me become socialized. To learn more, visit me at the spcaLA P.D. Pitchford Companion Animal Village & Education Center.
spcaLA is an independent nonprofit animal welfare organization that has been protecting the animals and people of Southern California since 1877. The organization is dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals through education, law enforcement, intervention and advocacy.
