Coco, domestic shorthair
Coco is a female domestic shorthair cat being cared for at Nashville Cat Rescue.
Coco is ready to make friends — she's happy to keep company with dogs, cats and children. Her vaccinations are up to date, and she's spayed. She is already house-trained.
Here's what Coco's friends at Nashville Cat Rescue think of her:
Coco came to us as a heavily pregnant rescue transport from Alabama. Thankfully, she got to us just in time and was able to have her babies safely indoors. At just one year old, Coco is still a kitten herself and has lots of fun, playful energy. She loves to talk, snuggle, run around the house and even plays fetch! She gets along wonderfully with other kitties and is best suited for an active home with children, cats and/or dogs. She is fearless and outgoing and would waste no time adjusting to her new surroundings.
