Our "Pet Of The Week" is a sweet puss named Lil Sis.

According to SPCA of Hancock County Shelter Manager, Cole, Lil Sis is the unofficial greeter of the group!

"When you visit one of the community cat rooms at the SPCA of Hancock County, you’ll likely be greeted by our sweet Lil Sis."

"Lil Sis, also known as Sissy, was transferred from D.E.A.R. and is a darling dilute calico with an adorable beige stripe going down her nose and striking white eyeliner. Lil Sis is about eight years old so she’s more mature than some of the other cats at the shelter, and she is about as sweet as could be."

With a name that's a little bit ironic, as this cat is not very small at all, Lil Sis might need a little bit of help making healthy life choices.

"Often the new cats hide behind her in the rooms as they acclimate, and although she isn’t sure why she is a pillar of strength to them, she puts up with it. Lil Sis is not really so little, and she would benefit from continued weight loss - exercise in the community rooms has been good for her, as has controlling her access to food (which she loves her food!)."

Cole says they're pretty confident Lil Sis, with a little time, would be a good addition to any household, as she's pretty easy going.

"She hasn’t met a human she hasn’t loved, young or old, and she remains calm even with very young children - while we haven’t seen her with dogs yet, it’s likely that with a slow introduction, she would do fine. Come meet this sweet girl - she would love to go home and be part of the family!"
