My story

Poca has a gentle and kind soul, and their affectionate personality has impressed our staff and volunteers. Our kitty friend does ask that any potential adopter is okay with a long, slow introduction to their new home. Cats have a hard time changing locations, and for shy kitties like Poca it can be even harder! Poca will do best in a home with older, more cat savvy children and without other animals due to her shy personality. We're hoping we can find a calm, low-key home for Poca to get comfortable in.
