Ibin is a 2-year-old brown tabby and tortoiseshell domestic short-hair cat available for adoption through Animal Allies in Duluth. Ibin is a sweet girl who can be a little timid when she first meets new people so she would do best in a home without any children so she can have time to get comfortable. Her previous owners said she does well with other cats and loves playing with toys!

An adoption fee is required for all adoptions. Animal Allies uses the "Meet your Match" adoption program designed by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The program evaluates an animal's behavior and interests and matches them to an adopter's preferences so you take home a pet you really click with. Call (218) 722-5341 or visit animalallies.net for more information.
