Kit Kat - Dealership Mascot

270-422-4901 - raysford@bbtel.com

Kit Kat showed up at the dealership steps a few years ago. She was skinny, hair matted and very malnourished. Ray and our entire family here at Ray's took her in with arms open. Everyone quickly fell in love with her and her sweet disposition. She has full run of the dealership and visits all employees throughout the day. Most customers who visit the dealership quickly find themselves attracted to this beautiful animal. Kit Kat has a home here for life now and repeat customers are often found looking for her when they come to Ray's. She enjoys her morning walks on a leash and her special diet of deli turkey heated for 15 seconds in the microwave. Come by and meet this incredible cat.
