Name: Tazzie
Breed: Cat
Age: 9 Years Old
Sex: Female

About Tazzie:
Tazzie came to Dakin in Springfield on November 13 because her person was moving.  She’s a very sweet and affectionate girl who was described by her person as playful, talkative, active, a wonderful lap cat and friendly to both family and visitors.  She greets people immediately and is very gentle.  Tazzie lived with another cat and they got along just fine.  She doesn’t have a history of living with dogs, but with the proper introduction, that should be fine.  She’s currently at Dakin’s Springfield adoption center, and if she’s not adopted before Friday, November 28, she’ll be one of the cats eligible for a $5 adoption fee on that day during Dakin’s Black Friday Adoption & Small Animal Fair Event.
