Bahama, tuxedo and domestic shorthair mix
Bahama is an adorable female tuxedo and domestic shorthair mix staying at House of Mews Rescue.
Have no fear: She's already house-trained, vaccinated and spayed.
Notes from Bahama's caretakers:
Bahama is a lovely young lady who accidentally got herself pregnant before she was even a year old. She gave birth to five beautiful babies who have all found homes. Now it's Bahama's turn to find her happy ending. She is very sweet and just wants to have her head scratched. She prefers to be close to people and is definitely not a loner. Bahama may be a bit anxious when she is in a new environment but her love can not be suppressed. She has dreamy eyes that look like they are gazing right into your soul. She has such a playful spirit and she brings so much joy to anyone who takes the time to get to know her.
