Shelby was brought to the shelter in a bag for life….it’s a shame the person who abandoned her didn’t feel she was for life 🙁

Shelby was so scared when she arrived and wasn’t happy in the shelter environment, so we sent her to a lovely fosterer who has allowed Shelby the choice and control in all interactions and given her a good routine, and Shelby has made so much progress!

She has blossomed into a lovely quirky little cat. She keeps getting more confident as time goes on. Shelby is a sweet and gentle young girl, who really enjoys playing and pouncing on her toys, especially little fluffy pom pom s, or any toy wiggled under something like a rug or blanket.

Shelby greats her foster every day with cute little chirrups, and purrs when she is around, she enjoys head scratches and strokes, but isn’t interested in getting on laps. She can be wary of new people, but doesn’t feel the need to hide from them anymore.

It has taken time and pacience for Shelby to get to this point, at first she wasn’t sure about whether to trust people, so she will need an adopter who can do the same for her as our wonderful foster:

  • Give her a quiet home
  • Allow her time to settle in and adjust
  • Allow her to choose to come to you for gentle fusses
  • Allow her to choose when the interaction ends
  • Give her all the playtime she wants

These will all help to build a bond and trust between Shelby and you, and she will reward you by being a beautiful and entertaining companion.

Shelby loves being a nosey neighbour and sits on the windowsill watching the world go by, so we think she will enjoy access to the outdoors when settled into her new home, she may be able to live with teenagers that are respectful and quiet around cats, and no other furries please.
