She is good with other cats and PAWS feels she would be happiest as the only cat in the home. Magic would love some great windows in her new home for sunbathing and bird-watching. Magic’s adoption fee is $50. To find out more about Magic, call Paws of Coronado, which runs the city’s Animal Care Facility at (619) 522-7371.
