Faithful is a 5-year-old tabby that was found as a stray. She is affectionate, curious and fun with a bit of sass mixed in. She knows what she likes and wants and prefers to be in charge. She enjoys petting and brushing and will grumble slightly when she’s had enough. When she’s in a loving mood, she’s very interactive and talkative. She needs an understanding adopter that is not intimidated by her sassy cat behaviors, because she has a sweet side too. To meet Faithful, email Catadoptions@nawsus.org. Visit nawsus.org.
