 Say hello to Penny, a friendly and low-maintenance older gal!

Penny is a sweet little grandma cat looking for the perfect place to spend her retirement. Her needs are simple: a comfy place to curl up, some head scratches, and plenty of treats! Penny would love to sit by your feet and keep you company while you work from home, but she's also fine doing her own thing when necessary. If you're lucky, she will talk to you with cute squeaky chirps.

Penny has been low-maintenance and well-behaved in her foster home. She would prefer a quiet home where she can be the only pet, with adults or possibly older children who can respect her need to take it easy in her golden years. Come fall in love with Penny today!

Note: Penny has a bandage on her neck in some of her photos because of a medical issue that has since resolved.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
