Fluffy has been adopted!

Birthdate 9/5/13. Fluffy is a curious but shy grey tabby girl. She had been dumped at a pound and taken in by a rescue group who could no longer keep her. She has such beautiful eyes and a nice coat. She comes out of her hiding place to see what is going on so we think she will be fine once she goes to her forever home. She gets along well with other kitties.
