I am not sure where to start but my name is Thistle. I am not mean at all, but I am very shy and I have not learned how to be a lap kitty quite yet. I am learning that petting is really nice. I came from a hoarding home and I just haven't learned that people are for snuggling not being scared of. I just don't quite know what to do with attention which is really a shame because I am such a sweet girl.
I am really scared of the boxes they put you in too, I think you call them "carriers". I had to go for surgery today to get ready to find my forever home and foster mom had quite a time convincing me to get in the little horrible house but she tells me that will get better in time as I learn to trust that people are not going to hurt me.
Foster dad comes out to see me and pet me so that I will learn that boys are ok too. He will pick me up and hold me a minute, but then I want to be sat back down where I feel comfortable. I know there is someone out there that will think I am special and worth waiting for the love I have to share. I am soft and silky and quite nice to pet, come out to see me soon.

Thank you for choosing to adopt!
As a no-kill rescue, we can only bring in and save more cats and kittens in need as our current cats and kittens are adopted. This is why we say that when you adopt one cat or kitten you are actually saving TWO lives! One is the current cat or kitten that you are adopting, the second is the one that we now have room to save and place into our safe shelter.
About The Cat Corner:
The Cat Corner was founded by a very passionate and devoted animal lover, Martha Nicholson. After seeing an overwhelming number of cats homeless and being euthanized, Martha was determined to open a no-kill shelter to make a difference in these cats' lives. In 1981, Martha purchased an old barber shop at her own expense and opened The Cat Corner in Hampton, Virginia. The Cat Corner is a completely volunteer operated organization and is solely funded by donations from the community. Because of the help of our caring and hardworking volunteers and the support and donations from our community, we have been able to uphold Martha's dream and make a difference in countless lives...and doing so for over three decades!
The Cat Corner, Inc. is a nonprofit, all-volunteer-run organization that does not receive any federal, state or local government funding. We depend solely from the generosity of caring individuals from our community to continue to do our work. www.TheCatCornerInc.com
