Pet of the week: Marilyn

HOT SPRINGS, S.D. (KOTA TV) - Meet Marilyn! She's a 4-and-a-half-year-old Tortoiseshell calico from the Battle Mountain Humane Society.

Marilyn's owner rescued her about 2 years ago, but is having health problems. The doctor has recommended her owner find a different home for Marilyn.

She grew up around dogs and other cats. Her owner believes Marilyn may have been abused by her first owners. She was very timid at first and took a while to warm up to her owner. She startles easily and hisses when frightened.

Marilyn has not been spayed, but has an appointment at the end of the month. She's an indoor cat and has never been outside.

She eats dry cat food and loves all sorts of treats.
