Plenty of Pets
Sophie and Pearl are beautiful girls who need a home where they are the only cats.
They had a tough time as kittens, and are carriers of feline infectious peritonitis (FIP). Although they are doing great, they could spread FIP if in a home where cats who aren’t infected.
These girls are spending the weekend at Truro Pet Valu, hoping to meet someone who will fall in love with them and adopt them.
