Meet Ari, a year-old cat looking for a forever home. She is a domestic shorthair mix with striped grey fur and large, luminous green and yellow eyes.

Still a tiny little thing weighing only 5 pounds, Ari came from an animal cruelty case in Kaufman County. She can be a bit shy at first, but, after a warming up period, she will be more than happy to get some serious chin-scratching done.

It might also be helpful to have another cat in the house to help her relax and get used to a new environment. In the beginning of her new journey, she may want to hide a bit, and hopefully her new parents will be patient with her.
