Mary Lou, a lovable and independent female black cat, is believed to be two to three years old and is looking for a home. Mary Lou was brought to the Cranston Animal Shelter back in June as a feral cat who did not get along well with people. Since then, Mary Lou has been able to warm up to people, spending her time walking around the office, sitting on counters and stealing seats from the shelter employees. Mary Lou loves head pats, and is vaccinated, spayed, dewormed and has tested negative for both feline HIV/AIDS and leukemia. Mary Lou is looking for the right home where she can be the only cat.
