Esther is very shy, but once she gets comfortable with you, she'll let you pick her up. She'll sit in your lap and talk to you. Though she gets along with other cats, she doesn't go out of her way to interact with them. Born around 2004, she was abandoned. She has recurring issues with an infection in her gums and has medication to take for that. Esther is a very sweet older girl who's looking for a calm home with very few other cats.
