Karma, a 4-year-old, female domestic shorthair cross tortoiseshell cat, is the East Bay SPCA's pet of the week. She is one of the best personal assistants around. You're working on the computer? Let her press the keys. Reading the paper? She'll hold the pages down for you. Watching TV? She'll just plop in your lap so you can pet her.

She loves an orderly household, will help you with all your chores and will help you relax. You'll wonder how you ever managed without her. Meet Karma at the East Bay SPCA Oakland Adoption Center at 8323 Baldwin St., Oakland, CA 94621. Visit www.eastbayspca.org to see more adoptable animals or call 510-569-0702 for more information.
