Why Not Me? Meet Missy!

By Colleen Williams
May 16, 2018 • 1 min. read

We’ve partnered with Pawsitive Alliance for the #WhyNotMePets campaign to give difficult-to-home pets an extra paw up. These lovable pets are ready to find their forever homes.



Age/Gender/Size: 8 years old; Female; Medium (9lbs)

Breed: Tabby

Likes: Humans and many pets!

Dislikes: Loud parties (“Turn that down!”)

Special Considerations: Missy’s adoption fee is only $15!

This sweet, gentle Tabby cat is 8 years young. Available at the Benton Franklin Humane Society in Kennewick, WA, Missy is a kind kitty soul in search of a like-minded home. She’s every bit as adorable – and earnest – as she looks. She loves being around people, and relishes in the doting and fawning (read: lots of petting!) she inevitably inspires.

Missy is more of an observer than a party animal, but she’s very friendly is looking for a forever home where she can be a true companion to a very special human. She has no known health issues and has been fully vetted and spayed. Are you looking for a calm, quiet kitty that will spend nights cuddled up on the couch? Find out more about Missy at Benton Franklin Humane Society in Kennewick, WA by emailing them at: or calling: 509-374-4235.

Every Wednesday, Healthy Paws will highlight a new pet from Pawsitive Alliance’s #WhyNotMePets campaign. Visit the #WhyNotMePets page for a list of adoptable dogs and cats.
