AGE: Sheba is a 2-year-old tuxedo girl with unique nose markings, and an engaging personality.

PERSONALITY: She gets along with other cats and converses easily with people on almost any topic. She is good at entertaining herself but does like knowing that her humans are nearby.

HIGHLIGHTS: No one understands why she has been at the shelter for such a long time. Maybe her special people just haven’t discovered her yet, but she would love to live in a real home.

AVAILABLE: At the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S. Pacific Hwy., between Talent and Phoenix, open 7 days a week.

COST: Sheba’s adoption fee is $45, and includes a free wellness visit at a local veterinarian office. Sheba is spayed.
