Shimmy is a curious, social, yet somewhat complex girl. She received her name after Tree House came to her rescue when a chase forced her to shimmy up a telephone pole! Shimmy really loves human attention, but on her own terms. Her perfect adopter would be willing to take the time to learn Shimmy’s likes and dislikes. She is quite talkative and loves having the cute orange triangle on her forehead scratched. Shimmy is excellent at communicating through body language, so it’s easy to tell when she’s had enough love for one sitting. She gets quite excited for playtime and especially loves paper tunnels! Shimmy is often upset by other cats, and therefore has her own private office at the shelter- once she is an only cat on the home front, with a quiet, stable environment, we believe her affectionate nature will only become stronger.
