Muffin is an 8-9 year old, sometimes curmudgeon lady who would love to find a home of her own. Her best friend is a big walker hound and she waits at the door for her canine friend every morning before they share breakfast from the same bowl. She may love the dog, but she doesn’t love loud environments or small children. Muffin would best serve her new human friend as a company cat and a lap cat, and she would love for her home to be quiet and stable, preferably with a cat-loving dog that is tolerant of her often attitudinal ways. Muffin is an indoor-only cat and is fully vetted.
