Do you want a cat who loves you, not just anyone - because she means it, and not just because you feed her? Meet Lyla. This distinguished lady doesn't seek affection from just anyone, you have to earn it over time. Lyla is a sweet independent cat who loves chin scratches, pets, and bed time snuggles, but doesn't love to mingle with strangers. However, once she's met you a few times it's a different story, she'll even come up to trusted friends and visitors for some love. Lyla will greet you at the door and sit with you while you read, sleep, or watch Netflix. Lyla has high standards of behavior - she doesn't scratch furniture, other people/animals, and she always uses the litter box - and is completely fine being left alone for a few days because she knows her true humans will always return for her. If you're interested in adopting Lyla, please e-mail Arthi at arthi.3092@gmail.com. ****As an added bonus, if you're over the age of 50, Lyla's adoption fee is waived as part of our Boomer's Buddies program! ****
