America the Beautiful (Cat)

Published by Alisa Mullins.

This cute little kitty is named America, which is appropriate, because she really is beautiful.

America was one of the estimated 80 million stray cats striving to eke out an existence across, well, America until a kind woman in rural North Carolina started feeding her. But cats cannot survive on bread, er, kibble alone: They need flea treatment, vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, veterinary care, an indoor home, and more. The woman who was feeding America knew that she wasn’t in a position financially to care for the friendly young cat properly, and she knew it wasn’t safe for her to be outside, so she did the smart, responsible thing: She called PETA and asked us to find the feline a good home.

America was recently spayed at one of PETA’s low- and no-cost mobile clinics and is recovering in PETA’s Membership department, aka “Foster Kitty Central.” She is charming the pants off everyone she meets with her stunning good looks and mellow disposition, and if you met her, we know she’d charm your pants off, too.

Hold onto your pants, though, because this little feline patriot is now up for adoption. If you love America—and really, who doesn’t?—this may be the cat for you. If you live anywhere on the East Coast, e-mail [email protected] to find out more about coming to America or vice versa.
