Meet Shirley Plantation's Cat, Tunnah

Shirley Plantation's Unofficial Greeter

Shirley Plantation in Charles City, Virginia, is more than just a place to see beautiful and unique architecture or delve into the rich history of Virginia's Carter family. If you are an animal lover, you'll also find chickens and goats, perhaps spot some of the plantation's wildlife, and if you're fortunate, meet one of the Carter dogs or cats.

Shirley is a pet-friendly attraction. While pets (other than service animals) are not allowed in the historic area, there is a designated area for walking dogs on a leash across from the visitor parking lot. Note: it's on the opposite side from the goat and chicken pastures.

I was fortunate to have been greeted by Tunnah, Shirley Plantation's tabby, on my last visit. After coming to greet me, my beautiful feline host graciously posed for a number of photos in her kitchen.
