KAMLOOPS -  Snowball, 438399, is the Kamloops SPCA's pick for Pet of the Week.

As a stray, Snowball came into the care of the B.C. SPCA a little worse for wear, according to SPCA staff.

At some point, Snowball did have a family, however, when found on the streets she was dirty and matted. The SPCA is not sure how long she had been living on the streets but after a shave and haircut, she felt a whole lot better.

She would do best as an indoor cat who gets regular brushing. It is important for her new family to turn bushing into a positive experience and SPCA staff says "nothing makes something more positive for Snowball than if it involves Temptations treats." She loves them and will rush over to you if you have them and happily nibble on them from your hands.

Snowball is a friendly girl who enjoys pets and attention. She is sensitive about her back end and she doesn't like to be handled too rough. She has arthritis so rough handling is hard on her but she will let you know by swiping or nipping at you as a warning.

The SPCA believes Snowball's ideal home would be a quiet adult home with no kids because she has no intention of putting up with their shenanigans.

She might prefer to be the only pet, however, the SPCA doesn't know how she would do with other animals so more testing would be needed.

If you want someone to talk to, Snowball is the cat for you. She will let you know when she wants attention but she is also independent and likes to find spots to curl up for naps.

Because of Snowballs arthritis, she may require daily pain medication to help her stay comfortable which would require regular medical exams to make sure she is doing well.

Looking for her second chance, Snowball is eager to find a family to retire with in comfort where she can share her love.

Snowball's intake date with the SPCA was in July so if you are looking to add her to the family, come down and visit the shelter, call them at (250)376-7722, email the SPCA at kamloops@spca.bc.ca or visit the website for more information.
