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

Maysha is a stunning 5 year old ginger tabby with sparkling, golden eyes. She is perfect all around, playful and a snuggle bug! She is incredibly loving, enjoys being pet and is the quintessential lap cat, she enjoys just being right beside her favorite people. She loves to play, too! She will watch, plan and pounce on her toys, her favorites are Da Bird and little fuzzy fake mice.

Maysha is a bit nervous around other animals, new people and active environments; she would probably do best as the only companion animal in a quiet home. Maysha was uncomfortable on the adoptions floor in Kitty City so she is being fostered by staff in their office at our Oglethorpe location.

If you would like to meet her, visit 71 Oglethorpe St. NW today or email Lisa at lstemcosky@humanerescuealliance.org for more information. Maysha qualifies for our Boomer's Buddies program, adopters who are 50 years of age or older may adopt an animal who is 5 years of age or older for a waived fee!

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*!
