When you reach a certain age in life, you know exactly what you want and refuse to settle for less, right? Well, today's Pet of the Week from Winnebago County Animal Services sounds like the perfect example of not settling for less that you deserve, and I think that makes her extra awesome.

Meet Twerp, a 13-year-old female cat available for adoption now at Winnebago County Animal Services.

If a strong-willed, independent kitty would be the perfect addition to your family, look no further than Twerp! Here's what Amber Pinnon, Adoption & Volunteer Program Coordinator for Winnebago County Animal Services, had to say about this special, sassy gal;

Say 'hello' to Twerp. Don't let that name be deceiving! This sassy senior loves to be the center of attention...on her own terms. Twerp is a spunky and independent gal who will appreciate someone who understands her. Patience is key for Twerp's adopter. She knows what she wants, but it may take some time for you two to reach an understanding. Twerp’s ideal home would be one where she can be 'queen bee!. Are you Twerp's perfect family?

I happen to have a loving female kitty at home who sounds a lot like Ms. Twerp, and I can tell you first hand, "center of attention" actually means loyal and affectionate when she chooses her "special" person.

Please consider adopting Twerp for $40 today at Winnebago County Animal Services. In fact, you can get ahead of the adoption game by filling out an adoption application now at wcasrock.org.
