CC4C

Miriam is a spayed, 1½-year-old. She is sweet, gentle, playful and alert, and is a wonderful companion, good with other kitties. She loves to "help" with housework and be close to her owner. She is easy to handle and loves to snuggle. Miriam was left behind when her owners moved, and was fed outdoors by kind neighbors. When she was about to have kittens, CC4C found a place for her to raise them. She was also a nanny to other orphaned kittens after hers were adopted.
