Puka is 1 year old. Because she was confined to a cage for a long time, she became plump from lack of exercise. Puka is afraid of other cats but is fine with well-mannered dogs. Puka will be a loving and playful companion given the chance. See Puka at El Dorado County Animal Services, 530-573-7925. For spay-neuter assistance and other support, call the Lake Tahoe Humane Society and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals at 530-542-2857.
