Pet of the Week – Tessa

Tessa was a scrawny thing rescued from under a porch with a bunch of kittens. She was scared and we thought she may be too unsocialized to be adopted and would have to go to a barn. But we were wrong. As soon as she didn’t have to fight to protect her babies, she turned into her real lovey-dovey self.
