I'm in a cage which means that you have to choose to come visit me, not the other way around. I prefer to have someone open my cage door quietly and talk to me in soft, calming tones before letting me sniff their fingers, which is always the polite way to meet a cat. Please don't be put off by my slightly reserved manner but coming to a shelter when you're a grand, more mature lady-kitty, was rather overwhelming at first. So many noises and scents and silly cats coming over to disrupt my beauty sleep! Sharing a home with an intelligent and loving human(s?) is what I'm really all about. I do like attention but I'm not demanding of constant admiration. Just a little now and then would be fine with me. Oh, I forgot to mention that my front paws been declawed so I won't shred your legs for some random love and affection. I also eat a special diet, but that's no big deal at all. The staff can tell you about it and set your mind at ease.
Just send me one of your loving gazes and softly spoken compliments while I'm relaxing in the sun in your thoughtfully purchased fluffy purple cat bed, where I can watch the birds and squirrels outside your living room window! That's my idea of heaven, isn't it yours, too?
