Hi there! My name is Shilo - but don't worry... though I may be a bit shy at first, I promise that's not where my name comes from! Give me a few days (and maybe a couple of treats) and I will be purring up a storm and ready to play.
People say I'm stunning, and don't I know it! I love to be brushed to keep my fur lovely and soft.
I have so much energy and love to play - I'll entertain you by chasing mice and jumping for feathers all afternoon. I would probably learn to play with another young cat, but I'm also happy to have all of your attention.
I love being close to you, and will sleep on your pillow if you let me but I'm not a big cuddler and I don't like being picked up very much. Although I love to have my chin and neck scratched and be petted, I'll let you know when I've had enough. And I don't really like the loud tiny humans that try to touch me.
I've spent a lot of time in cramped cages, patiently waiting for someone who loves me for me. I want to make it work this time! I'd love to meet you and find a place in your home and you heart forever.
