Rare Cat at Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA

Posted: Updated:

A rare cat is up for adoption at the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA.

Her name is Willma Wonka. The SPCA says she's a Havana Brown, an unusual chocolate-brown cat, hence the homage to the famous fictional chocolate maker.

But the SPCA says she's not eccentric like her namesake, but very calm and pleasant.

While Willma is rare, it's not so rare to find a purebred at the shelter.

"We get a lot of purebreds in the SPCA, a lot of people don't think that but we do. We get Siamese, Persians, Himalayans, we also get purebred dogs. You just never know what's going to come in from day to day," said Beth McPhee, who works at the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA.
