Diesel is a kitten who ranges from a playful party animal to a more sedate love bug. She loves to climb up the cat tree as fast as she can, frequently slamming it into the wall.

Afterwards she hangs upside down from the top and puts on her innocent face. She goes crazy over bouncy balls, and when one is thrown she becomes a flying hairball with a mission. As soon as the lights go out at night, she sneaks into bed and goes to sleep on the pillow, purring the night away. She will make an exceptionally fun and loving cat for her forever family.

Diesel is being offered for adoption through PALS, a Lodi-based nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the welfare of companion animals in Lodi. For more information about Diesel, please call PALS at 209-224-0354 or email pals.lodi@yahoo.com.
