Meet Essie, the Haven of the Ozarks Pet of the Week. Essie is an older kitty at nine years, but cats can live to a very old age with good care. She came to us over a year ago when her owner could no longer care for her. She spent a lot of that time as a pretty shy lady but recently, Essie has become extremely friendly. She seems particularly fond of men and is very affectionate. Essie has also lived with both dogs and other cats. She loves laps and being held and would appreciate being back in a real home where she gets more attention than we’re able to give her at the Haven. You can meet her at the Haven any day of the week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., or call 417-835-3647 for more information. Please help us get this beautiful and sweet girl a forever home. Contributed photo
