The closing of Grande Tours has left Kayak Kitty without a home. Originally from the Fishery Restaurant feral colony, she found a new home at Grande Tours six years ago. A pre-adolescent at that time, she was spayed, given all of her shots, and had her ear clipped prior to release back into the colony.
Kitty had other ideas. She returned to Grande Tours and never left. Kayak Kitty is an indoor/outdoor type well familiar with the litter pan and a tempting tin of cat tuna. She greeted children on tours during her six year residence and shared the companionship of long-time staffers Mary Cordero and Bill Godek who, sadly, are unable to offer her a forever home.
She prefers the company of humans – a true lap cat. Other cats may be accepted. Polite dogs are welcome friends, ruffians not so much.
Please call Bill at Grande Tours, 697-8825, if you have room in your heart and your home for this special little girl.
