Poor Bitsy went through this once already, now she needs to start looking for a home all over again. This 4 1/2 year old gorgeous girl originally came to us in the fall of 2011 as a little kitten with several of her littermates. She got adopted quickly, as most kittens do, but then apparently her owners didn't care so much for her as she grew up. She turned up at a county shelter recently and once they found out that she came from us here at Popcorn Park, Bitsy came back to us. She was terribly shy at first and who can blame her? But with lots of love and patience from her caretaker, Bitsy has completely come around and is now a mushy, lap-loving girl. She is so happy to cozy up to you, and all she wants is to be held and made to feel safe. Bitsy is very loving and affectionate and we can't imagine why someone would not want her around. She is an absolute doll. Bitsy is a little grumbly with other cats, but she could coexist with another cat as long as they don't cause her any grief. She enjoys lounging around in a comfortable lap, burying herself in a nice cardboard box from time to time, and just being treated with kindness and respect. Come in and meet Miss Bitsy, we know you'll love her too. File#25567 11/17/15
