Fern is the fattest, most independent cat I have ever met.
It was her first time up on the rooftop garden at the Toronto Humane Society, and she had to be lifted in and out of her cardboard cat carrier. I love her.
Fern, a five-year-old cat, will let you know when she wants cuddles and pets — and when she doesn’t. Like most cats, she was adept at ignoring me, even (or especially) when I was sitting right beside her.
If Fern sounds like the cat for you, visit the shelter at 11 River St., or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
