Vera: A Success Story
Shelly is bonded with Golden, so they must be adopted together. Shelly is kind and fun-loving. She loves treats and to play. She is shy but likes people, and is quickly learning to appreciate human touch. We believe that, with a gentle and patient person or family, she will do extremely well. Shelley is enrolled in Gifford's Socialization Program for Shy and Fearful cats, designed to help give our under-socialized cats a chance at a permanent family and home. She now accepts full body pats, chin rubs and head scratches! If you have any questions regarding this cat please feel free to get in touch with the shelter. Get the application HERE.
