Sally is wishing for a home this holiday - meet the pet of the week

By Deb Kern


Sally, waiting to be adopted at the Humane Society of Huron Valley

We’d like you to meet Sally, a special little cat that we adore. She came to the Humane Society of Huron Valley seven months ago along with 29 other adult cats that were not being cared for properly. Sally was socialized with other felines and would be a good candidate for a home that might be looking for another companion cat.

Sally is 6 years old, and because she was not given healthy food in her younger years and never visited a veterinarian until now, she has developed a chronic eye condition that causes her eyes to run. It doesn’t bother Sally but we think people are afraid she’s sick, so they pass right by her.

Affectionate and playful, Sally is a dear soul who is happy taking naps in her cat bed and batting a furry mouse along the floor while she purrs the entire time. Sally has blossomed into a loving cat, and while she spends her days in one of our community cat rooms right now, we know she’s much prefer to finally have a home of her very own.

Could you give Sally a home for the holidays? She’d be forever grateful.

My heart just broke reading this. I wish my 14 year old calico would get along with other cats, I would be at HSHV in a heartbeat. Here's hoping Sally finds that home she so lovingly deserves....
