As you can see, I’m a very pretty girl. I really love when my human friends play wand toys with me and give me baby food chicken. Once in a while I'll let someone brush me. I think shelter life is getting to me as I’m afraid and nervous around other cats. I’ll swat at other cats when they are nearby or walk towards me, and I’ll try to find a quiet corner where no one will bother me, but it’s hard when I’m in room with sixteen others. Before coming to the shelter, I was trapped to give birth to one kitten. I spent time in foster care with my kitten, and eventually I was returned to where I had been trapped because I didn’t appear to be adoptable. Then in March, 2015 I was trapped again when MWHS got the call that all of us needed to be removed from the property where we'd been living. I want humans to understand that I've been through so much in my short life, and I need you to be gentle and patient with me. Please visit me at the shelter so I can show you how playful I can be..
