Shelley is an incredibly observant cat-she doesn't miss a thing-and we think she'd enjoy watching her human go about their daily business around the house or apartment.
If you extend your hand slowly to Shelley, she'll touch her nose to it and let you pet her. She's still getting used to human touch, but she's starting to see how nice it can be. She makes great eye contact, and it suggests she has confidence at her core-confidence that the right human could really help to bring out.
Shelley's closest buddy in the shy cat room is Golden. While they don't necessarily have to be adopted together, we feel both of them would transition to a new home more easily if they went together.
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. If you have any questions regarding this cat please feel free to get in touch with the shelter.
Come meet our cats! We are open to the public Thursdays 4:00 - 7:30PM and Saturdays and Sundays 1:00 - 4:00PM. Other days and times are by appointment.
