Olivia, The Long Neck Cat, Part Giraffe or Llama

Olivia needs a home. And she’s waiting for you with Friends of Anne Arundel County Animal Care & Control. When you see her, don’t be surprised if she is struggling around her long neck to look better.

Why?
The shelter says Oliva is “part domestic cat, part giraffe.” Llama?” And no, the photo isn’t Photoshop. That neck is all Olivas!

Olivia Makes Friends

The Friends of Anne Arundel County Animal Care & Control is a group of volunteers who work with Anne Arundel County Animal Care, care for animals and raise funds for the shelter. These dedicated volunteers reach deep into their hearts and their own pockets to meet the needs county budgets can’t match. And Olivia, the cat, is one of the many animals that find love with the Friends of AACACC.

And the white-gray tabby cat has found many friends among the volunteers. It is estimated she was about four years old and came to the shelter as a stray, her past a mystery. With her strangely long neck and wide green eyes, Oliva is definitely an eye catcher.
Her purrrsonality makes her even more lovable too.

Hamilton the Hipster Cat started life as a feral kitten. But the Humane Society of Silicon Valley rescued him from wild life and prepared him for a forever family.
