Emily is a two-year-old beauty that loves to talk.

Walk into the room where Emily lives at Responsible Pet Care and you will hear some soft meows coming from Emily’s kennel. This is how she invites people to come a little closer and visit with her.

Emily will carry on a one-sided conversation until she gets what she is looking for: someone to open her door and scratch her head.

Beautiful Emily is a friendly cat. She loves humans, but does not like to be with other cats. She would be the perfect choice for someone who wants to pamper a cat and have someone to talk with. Just don’t let her monopolize the conversation.
