BIG FAN OF: Being petted. She loves it and will purr like crazy.
NOT A FAN OF: Taking things too fast. She will probably need some time to settle into her new home. Don't be surprised if she hides at first. Just be patient -- once she feels secure, she'll start making friends.
SPECIAL FEATURES: Once Twila knows you, she is a very sweet lap cat who will cuddle closer if you try to get up. She's playful and curious with a wonderful sense of fun. She has been doing well with her foster family's dogs and cat, but she'd be totally fine being an only pet, too.
DREAM HOME: With patient people who will give her plenty of time to settle in and come out of her shell. We think she'd probably be fine with kids as long as they understand that she'll need time to get used to them.
This cat is participating in our Shelter Cat Getaway program -- a program designed to give cats a vacation from the shelter and let them enjoy home life while they wait to be adopted. While vacation is fun, there really is no place like home, so please consider adopting one of these deserving cats! As part of this program, their adoption fee is just $50 each (or $75 for a pair)! To learn more about this cat or schedule a time to meet it, please contact Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org or Betsy at email@example.com.
