Hello! My name is Cashew, and I'm a buff and white girl born in 2016.

My human and I lived happily together, until they passed away. A nice neighbor stepped in to help and brought me to MaxFund. This was back in February 2021. I had never been around other people or animals, so you can imagine how terrified I was. I stayed in a cage for the first few months, which was fine by me. I hissed at everyone.

Eventually, I calmed down and they would leave my cage open. Slowly, over the next few months, I started to understand that the shelter was my new home and I needed to accept that. And, if I wanted the freedom to move around the room, I had to get along with the other cats. As I became more comfortable with them, I also relaxed more around people. I am quite adorable and it just makes sense that they are drawn to me. It's the blessing or curse of being a cat, depending how you look at it. There were still some cats picking on me, so they moved me to a calmer room.

I warmed up to the volunteers when I realized they just want to play with me, give me treats, and stroke my soft fur. Since I'm not used to sharing, I really like the attention to be on me, so I will be happiest as your only cat. I can be pretty comical, so besides companionship, I offer entertainment. I thought I had my forever home, but you just never know what life will bring you. I'm very ready to move on, if you give me a chance.
