Charlize appreciates slow introductions. She likes to take her time getting to know someone when making new friends. Once she feels comfortable around new people and adjusts to her new surroundings, she seeks your attention and can be very affectionate.
Despite her shy demeanor, Charlize is quite a playful cat! She loves to play with her favorite toys. With a bit of time and patience, you’ll see this sweet girl’s spunky, spirited personality shine through.
Charlize is eager to join an “adults-only” home with an adopter with some previous shy cat experience. She can live with other cats but will need a slow introduction when meeting new feline friends.
