My story

Sophie is a gorgeous solid white cat with crystal blue eyes. As is the case with many white, blue-eyed cats, Sophie is deaf; she has also been declawed, so while she doesn't like granular litter, she will use a box lined with a puppy pad. Sophie was once part of a multi-cat home, where she had run of the family's large master bedroom since she didn't get along with their other two kitties, both of whom also had some special needs. But when one of her owners fell ill with an autoimmune disorder, Sophie had to be confined to a bathroom. Sophie's family knew that she deserved a home where she could roam safely and freely, so they made the tough choice to surrender Sophie to the refuge in hopes of finding a better home for their sweet girl. Sophie is very shy, and while she likes to be petted a little bit, she does not like being held. Because she is so skittish, her former owners believe that Sophie may have been abused before coming to live with them. Sophie would probably do best in a single-cat household with no young children, but she may be okay with another friendly and non-aggressive/non-dominant adult cat. Approx. DOB: 03/01/2014
