No, your eyes are not deceiving you. Today's pet of the week is not a turtle, it's a beautiful female cat named, Turtle!

Turtle is a beautiful tortoise shell (hence her name) female cat who is a little over a year old. She was found abandoned in a home with 4 other animals. For the life of me I can't figure out why someone would want to abandon such a sweet and beautiful kitty. Turtle may come off a little shy at first, but who wouldn't if they were left for dead by someone they trusted? (Can you tell I'm upset about her previous life?)

Once Turtle warms up to her surroundings she is incredibly sweet and loves to be held and petted. She also has no problem making herself right at home.
