   Leave a treat for Shelley

Shy and sweet

Kitty Complexion:

Quick Bio:
-cat rescue

July 1st 2004


Venturing out on the patio. I sit in the doorway and pet her. As long as the door stays open, she's very happy to explore.

Rumble when he gets too dominant, and Frodo. And that Lurch has taken over her room.

Favorite Toy:
She likes it when I toss food or stuffed mice in the air. She hates the Cat Dancer.

Favorite Nap Spot:
My bed.

Favorite Food:
Not picky. When she was a kitten she'd get into the salad and toss the lettuce on the floor.

Just being sweet.


Arrival Story:
I fostered her. She was a calm, confident kitten but turned into a timid cat for some reason. She hated adoption days and usually avoided them successfully. She had a sixth sense about it. One day I had tried to lure her for over an hour. I got a phone call that my niece had been in a minor car accident and was pretty shaken. Frustrated with the cat and late for the adoption, I said out loud, "forget the adoption, I'm going to see about Celeste (niece)." Not thirty seconds later, Shelley emerged, "meow, meow," rubbing against my leg. So she won.

It has taken a long, long time to get her over her timidity, but I'm very happy to say that she's now very affectionate and trusting of me. Unfortunately she also pees on my bed, but that's some kind of love thing and not anxiety. Sigh.
