****I AM A HIDDEN GEM****

Hey there! I'm Peppermint! Honestly, I'm pretty nervous here at the shelter, so please excuse me if I don't come running up to say hello. You see, I had a really nice, calm home and was very happy there, but due to a change in my owner's employment, I needed to find a new home for myself. Even though I'm scared, I still really like people, so if you sit with me for a minute, I will approach you once I feel safe. It will just take a second for me to warm up, and even less time if you have food (I love food - check out my video and see for yourself). Once I trust you, I love to be petted and will headbutt your hand for more attention if you're not giving me enough. If you have a quiet home that's looking to add a sweet cat, consider me! I'd love to go to an easy-going house without small children or loud noises! Stop by and see me!

As a Hidden Gem, I get my very own volunteers who spend extra time with me and work with me on basic training needs. That way, I’ll be extra ready to settle into my new home! And, because I’ve been here a little bit longer than my friends, staff have had the opportunity to get to know me really well, and they will gladly answer any questions you may have about me.

As an extra "thank you" for considering taking me home, my adoption fee has been waived*!
