Hello friend! My name is Pippin, and I'm a small but brave tabby girl, born in 2016. There are quite a few of us tabbies at the shelter, but my spectacular tufted ears make me stand out from the others! I think you'll find my back story to be an interesting one. I lived in a town in New Mexico with a big hearted lady. She took in animals who had no one to care for them. Soon people were just dropping them off, and the numbers grew. She did the best she could, and I'll always be grateful. Sadly, she passed away in March. MaxFund traveled down there and brought thirty of us back. Most have been lucky enough to be adopted, but my turn hasn't come yet. When I first arrived in the Shy room, I was pretty scared. I would perch on the highest shelf, and peer down at visitors. But, I started to make the connection between the humans here and things I like-treats, toys, and even pets. I've made a lot of progress since arriving here, and would love to continue in a forever home. I get along well with other cats, used to live with a dog, and even had a rooster as a friend. I don't ask for attention like some of the other cats in my room, which is probably why I get overlooked. I'm pretty quiet, too. But, I can assure you, I want to be adopted as much as any other cat. I just struggle to show it. I hope learning about me has made you curious, and you'll consider paying me a visit.
