Hey, I bet you won’t believe that a lovely young gal like me was out there wandering around the scary streets alone, never knowing where to find my next square meal, but I was! Then some kind folks brought me to safety and now they tell me that I might find the great home I’ve never had. Now, I’ve got to tell you that I’m still a bit shy and scared in strange new surroundings. So, when you come to meet me, and I sure hope you will, please take it slow and let me warm up and get comfortable on my own terms. Then, maybe we can see if we might be a perfect match.
