Adoptable cat ‘Avalanche’ is full of affection

An avalanche of cats might be a catastrophe, but adopting one named “Avalanche” is an entirely different matter altogether.

Avalanche is a 20-month-old female brown tabby who loves to cuddle, and is up for adoption via the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

“She also loves toys, especially pipe cleaners and wand toys, but of course, feather wands are a toy for two, and Avalanche is looking for that special someone to join her for a rousing game,” AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter said. “She can get a little exuberant when playing, so would love a family with older children or cat-savvy owners.”
