They say that black cats are the last to be adopted, although we love them, especially a spunky girl like Francine who has a voracious appetite and a lot to say.

Our SPCA of Hancock County Pet of the Week is pretty vocal and loves attention.  She may remind you of an old girlfriend, although she's not too keen on being picked up.

Francine loves being pet on her head though, and she sometimes makes cute little "sigh" noises when doing so. She might follow you around meowing for food, but the staff at the SPCA only lets her have dry food in small portions to make sure she doesn't eat too quickly and get sick. They think she'd eat the whole shelter if she could!

Francine wasn't spayed when she came to us, and it turned out she had pyometra. Pyometra is an infection of the uterus which, if left untreated, can be fatal. So she was given an immediate antibiotic injection and was scheduled for a spay as soon as possible.

Spay surgeries for pyometra usually cost a little more (an extra $125 or more) and are more invasive than a standard spay surgery because the uterus is enlarged. But Francine got the care she needed and healed well!

Now she's ready to come home with you where she can eat even more snacks!

We're hoping that you or someone that you know may be interested in Francine. Schedule an appointment to meet her in person!

As a reminder, the SPCA of Hancock County is still operating by appointment-only for the safety of the animals, as well as visitors and staff. If you are looking to adopt, please check their website where they have an adoption application and the available animals listed. For general inquiries, please call them at 207-667-8088, email, or send them a Facebook message.
