Thank you for your interest in our adoptable animals. If you would like more information about this pet, see the Shelter information below. We would love to help you rescue a perfect pet!Some of the very saddest situations we face at the shelter are when people pass on and their animals are surrendered to us. Suddenly a pet's life is turned upside down. Penny went through this but her people made arrangements for a family to take Penny in at 6 years old. This sweet, shy girl settled in just fine but the resident cat continually picked on her, making her miserable. After 5 months, her new family finally conceded that it was not fair to Penny to go through this. Penny has had a sensitive tummy in the past but she has had no issues with us. It is quite possible that all the tension she experienced contributed to that, too. Penny is reported to be very sweet but does not care to be picked up (not uncommon with adult cats). She will sit next to you and eventually sneak up onto your lap for a good cuddle. We recommend Penny be your only kitty so she does not go through the trauma of being harrassed again. Call the shelter at 757-385-4444 opt 2 and ask to meet her and take her home on adoption day. Penny is currently in foster care. Penny is already spayed and can come home with you then. #1703-1603 UPDATE from Penny, herself!: I might be 6yo but my foster momma said I act like a kitten. I am full of spunk and personality! I am shy around new people and places at first but I warm up fast and I love love love to be pet and have my ears rubbed! If I am not the center of your attention I will stare you down with my head cocked to the side wondering what you are doing that could be more important!!! Don't try to read a book around me, I will just crawl on your chest and then you will have to pay attention to me!! Once I bond with you for a few days I will let you pick me up but no sooner, we have to be BFFs first. I keep all my 'treasures' in my water bowl! Every day my foster mom takes them out and I have to put them back. It is hard work because she puts my treasures back where I found them the first time so I have to go all around and collect them again. My favorite treasure is hair ties but I also love cheese wrappers, small nail files, plastic caps, basically anything small like me that I can play with! I am anxious around other cats. I have a history of being mistreated by another cat so that is to be expected. My foster mom says she is 'assessing' me because I might need to be the only kitty in my next home.
