Hello! My name is Yalu! Aren't I a beautiful tabby cat? I look like I should be in commercials, right? I'm just that good looking! I am a small-sized kitty and I have nice short hair. Don't you know how easy that is to maintain?

I was born in 2006, and I had a good home until my owner lost his apartment lease and was no longer able to take care of me. I had a cat friend at my last home and we bonded right away. Just a little feline solidarity, you know. I would probably be good with another cat in your home. I'm a real cool gal. In fact, I may be a little too cool! I'm very independent and you may have to seek me out in my favorite cubbies in the cat towers. I don't want to come on too strong. I heard that if I play hard to get, you'll want me even more!

I might be a little shy when you first meet me. I march to the beat of my own drummer, so don't be afraid if I don't come up to you right away. Try throwing some treats or little cat food bites toward me in my cubby and I start to warm up to you. Plus, it's really cute when I eat them because I love to scrunch up my adorable forehead and little speckled nose. I might have a few abandonment issues after being taken to MaxFund, so I just need you to show me that I can trust you. I heard that patience is a virtue. I would love to let you practice some patience while you let me adjust to your new home. Once we get to know each other, I'm a very loyal girl and will love you very much. I sure would love to meet you and get to know you in my forever home! Come see me sometime!
