Now that Mammy’s face has caught your eye, discover what makes her personality equally unique and lovable! Mammy is looking for a best friend with whom she can be a loyal companion. She wants nothing more than a lap to lie in, while you read a book, sit at the computer, or relax in front of the T.V.

She also likes to tag along as you do the dishes or other chores around the house. Hopefully you don’t mind if she shares your bed at night, since she loves to help you stay warm and snuggle.

Mammy has a wonderfully friendly and outgoing personality. She is fine with meeting new people, and is comfortable around dogs and kids, as long as they are respectful of her more mellow demeanor. Although her more rambunctious days are behind her, she still has many silly moments as she bats around her favorite mouse toys.


Despite her age, this lovely lady needs little special care. She does require a strict diet of only wet food since she lost all her teeth as a result of a viral infection. She needs no medication, and has plenty of healthy years ahead of her. Will your home finally be her forever home?

Mammy was featured in Berkeleyside’s March 3 “Adopt a Pet” column and is still looking for a home. She will be at the Milo Foundation’s East Bay adoption event tomorrow, Sunday April 22, 12am-4pm, at the Rockridge Pet Food Express store in Oakland. Broadway/51st Street. Check out the list of all the animals that will be there.

Berkeleyside’s Saturday column, “Adopt a Pet”, hopes to help match pets with a home and loving owners in our community. We partner with the Milo Foundation and Berkeley Animal Care Services to introduce just one of many pets that can be adopted. The Milo Foundation, a nonprofit, no-kill organization, provides an alternative for homeless pets throughout Northern California, through education, adoption services, and sanctuary until permanent homes can be found. Contact them directly to find out the more than 300 wonderful animals that are available for adoption.
