Cat of the Week

Meet Harmony....she was returned to us as her owner was unable to keep her as his circumstances had changed. Harmony is a lovely girl, and is approximately 7-8 years old. She really deserves to find her forever home and is such a placid cat. She has lived with another cat and would make a great addition to any family. Do come and see her soon.
