Violet has been at the shelter since January. For more than three months, the plus-size gal has been confined so she isn’t getting the exercise she needs. Calm and patient, Violet wishes every day for space and a home of her own. About 5 years old, Violet would like to be an only pet. In return, she offers plus-size love.
