Adoptable cat Raina starts every morning with a high-pitched meow

Raina the cat is almost like a rooster.

Every morning, the 13-month-old female dilute calico cat greets the world with a high-pitched meow.

“Raina is the ultimate office buddy,” AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter told ALXnow. “She knows exactly when you need to be distracted from the computer (for your eyesight, of course!), when you need cuddling and when you just need to play with a wand toy.”

Hardter also says that Raina is one of the softest cats that you will ever pet.
