Canyon County Animal Shelter

Why Myrtle is so special:

Myrtle came to the shelter as a stray and from the moment she came inside, I could tell there was something special about her. She has a form of midgetism that can be found in inbred animals, and a cranial deformity which affects her soft palate and her nose. She snorts a lot, has a large underbite and cannot eat solid foods. Myrtle is quite the love bug, though. She is always the first one up in the house, greeting everyone with a purr and her big beatuiful eyes. She has flourished playing with her foster brothers/sisters and lots of love from everyone she meets.
Myrtle is a joy, and I look forward to being her servant for the remainder of her little life.

If your pet could talk, what would he or she tell us about you?:

My human listens very well. I had her trained in about a week to cater to my every whim. I get away with a lot since I am a bit different from other cats. I think I could get used to her...
