From last week, sweet Molly the hound mix is still waiting for her forever family. It was the best week ever, however, for Hannah and Petunia, because both were adopted into loving homes. 

This week we've got a pretty little cat named Sister, who was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on December 20. Could this kid-friendly kitty be the next "sister" in your family? Let's find out.

Breed: Domestic shorthair mix

Age: 4 years

Weight: 14 pounds

Personality: Sister is a bit shy with strangers at first, but she warms up quickly and lets out a meow to say hello. She loves playing with a feather wand but needs to stay inside, because her front paws are declawed. 

Vital stats: She has been spayed, tested for FIV/FeLV (she’s negative) and microchipped, and she has received her age-appropriate vaccinations.

Come meet Sister (#123608) today at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas at 2400 Lone Star Dr., near I-30 and Hampton Road. The center is open seven days a week, noon-6 pm.

The adoption fee includes spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, heartworm test for dogs 6 months and older, initial heartworm preventative for dogs, feline leukemia test for cats 4 months and older, microchip, rabies tag, and free leash or cat carrier.
