Valentina''s adoption fee will be waived on Nov 5 & 6, thanks to the Catvocates, the Community Cats Podcast, and the Ivan Smith Adoption Challenge. Beautiful Valentina is 5 years old. She is a sensitive girl and we think she is just looking for the right home. She bonds very closely to one person and her prior owner was a woman. She would show affection every day by rubbing on her legs and laying in bed with her. But ValentinaÂs world changed after a move to a home with a new family member, a man, who she was frightened of. The dynamics of the home changed and Valentina was no longer happy. We think she prefers female companionship, but generally, her new owner will be a gentle person who understands cats, with some patience to allow Valentina to get to know them, and will be able to give Valentina the attention she needs. She would prefer the company of adults because kids are just too scary for her. Valentina enjoys using a scratching tree and loves to watch the birds and squirrels and the leaves fly from a cat tower. She has always been an indoor girl and she must remain so because she has been declawed on her front paws. She has no history with other pets and would settle in best as the only pet. Please come and meet Valentina if you are looking for a new best friend.
