A 4-year-old cat has finally found a home after nearly 450 days at a Chicago-area animal shelter. 

Polly was the only animal to ever be featured in two Clear the Shelters events at the Michiana Humane Society in Michigan City. The adordable cat will be going home with her new family on Saturday, the shelter said. 

Polly first came to the Michiana Humane Society in May of 2018.

“She can be so very loving, affectionate, and even will give kisses,” the shelter previously wrote on its Facebook page. “Then, she is content to hang out and watch out the window. She is an independent but quite social girl. Polly will ask for belly rubs and loves to chase feathered toys! She has a sassy side, too, to go along with all that sweetness!”
