Billie Jean is in need of a loving home! She can be adopted at Street Tails Animal Rescue.

Time to meet the new Pet of the Week! Billie Jean is a 1-year-old domestic shorthair cat and she needs a loving home.

Billie Jean is a recovering teen mom. At not even a year old, she found herself abandoned outside with a litter of kittens.

Look at her beautiful green eyes! Take this loving cat home today. Billie Jean can be adopted from Street Tails Animal Rescue.

Fortunately, a good Samaritan intervened and Billie Jean and her four kittens were brought into foster care, where they thrived. 

Now Billie Jean is ready to find a forever home. She is incredibly sweet and talkative. She loves a good chin scratch and will reward you with a gentle head butt or loving gaze from her luminous green eyes. 

If you’re looking for a tender sweetheart, Billie Jean’s your girl! Fill out an application at Street Tails Animal Rescue to adopt her.
