Berkeley East Bay Humane Society

Cumbia, the pet of the week at the Berkeley East Bay Humane Society, is a 1-year-old charmer who simply wants to be loved and give love to her forever family. She loves kneading her paws onto soft pillows, purring all the while. Her foster mom says she is very people oriented and seems to love just about everyone she meets. She's always ready to take a seat on your lap or next to you to purr. Take your time to get to know her -- she loves straws, so drag one across the floor and you'll see her do acrobatics. Being a tortie, she is quite talkative and enjoys chirping all about her day to you. Cumbia would probably do well in a home with another cat given the proper introduction. To meet Cumbia stop by the Berkeley East Bay Humane Society during adoption hours from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays at 2700 Ninth St. For more details email cats@berkeleyhumane.org or call 510-845-3633, ext. 14
