ITHACA, N.Y. — Betsy will have been at the shelter for ONE YEAR on December 10, 2015. And we just don’t understand why!

Lucky Miss Betsy was brought to the SPCA by a kind person who found her during a snow storm. She’s quite a sweet cat, and very pretty too, but because she can get easily overstimulated, she should not go to a home with children. Because she’s not so fond of other cats, Betsy would prefer to be the only cat in the home. Could that home be yours? Betsy has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and is ready to go to her forever home.

As an extra bonus, a wonderful volunteer and donor has offered to donate a large donation to the shelter’s Angel Fund for medical emergencies once she finds her new home!
