Hi! My name is Stella, and I’m a bit of a late bloomer. People used to make me so nervous, so I’d hide, and therefore I lived at the shelter for 10 years. But then I got to know my foster mom and discovered I LOVE sitting in her lap for hours on end. Every morning when she comes out of her bedroom, my tail quivers with excitement. Sometimes, the petting feels so good that purring isn’t enough! I make a cute little trilling noise that sounds a bit like a cooing morning dove that happens to have a slight cold. With this realization, I decided that maybe I should get to know her family and friends a little bit. Guess what?!?! They‘re really awesome too. They scratch my chin and cheeks while I sit in their laps! With new people, I still hesitate, but then I build up my courage and wander over to see if they might be nice too. While I love my foster mom a whole lot, I think I might be brave enough to take the next step and find my nice quiet furrever home. I’m still a bit shy, so I think dogs and small children might be too much for me, but I wouldn’t mind a laid back cat. One area that I have not made progress in is leg length. I have short legs that don’t let me jump very high. I can just barely make it onto the low couch and can’t even dream of making it onto your table or countertops. I’m more than willing to make up for it by keeping your lap very warm and making cute little noises that will make your heart smile. Please consider me for a trial adoption!
