Hey, Lila here..... Let me tell you a little about myself: I was found at a local shelter, hiding under my bed and hoping no one would notice me. Let me tell you, it's tough to hide when you are a little "big boned" like myself! I did get picked by the nice people here at PAN, though, and I have come a long way. I no longer hide under my bedding and I sit on top of my bed at adoption day, and am usually happy to get a little scratch on the head. I am very uncomfortable around other cats, dogs and young kids, though, so I would be happiest in an adult home as an only pet. (Well, OK, I guess a tank of fish would be fine - they are fun to watch). I am working on my waistline, but it is a slow process. I am hoping for someone willing to give me a little time and space to settle in. I'm not the kind of cat that will accept being carried around or forced to sit on laps, but I will sit by you and and we can watch TV together. I just need someone willing to let me be me, and not try to make me into something I'm not. I like a peaceful home and a stable environment. Do you think we could be friends?
