This is Sarah, a sweet, quiet girl who came to us when her owner died. A volunteer wrote this Christmas wish for her:
'Sarah has been at Colony Cats almost a year. She's very shy. After several months in a cage, we tried moving her to the adoption side in the Zen Garden Room but it turned out to be just too overwhelming. She appeared to have stopped eating and became very sick. Within 4 days she was brought back over to her private intake area cage. Sarah needs a quiet home and she would love to be an only cat.
My Christmas wish for Sarah is that she will find a kind heart who will accept her as she is and she will no longer be confined to a cage. Someone who will work with her to grow and love as she did with her previous family. She is shy but she's already come a long way at the shelter. With love and attention I think she would learn to trust again.'
If you would like to meet Sarah visit our adoption center and we will arrange a meeting for you with this shy, sweet girl. Sara is 5 or 6 years of age, spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccines.
