Good day, kind friends. I'm Sissy, a beautiful 12-year-old girl with a sleek black coat and sparkly green eyes. I came to MaxFund in May 2021.

I've had a lot to overcome and I've been trying really hard to gather my courage and come out of my shell. My owner was evicted, you see, and I was temporarily taken into another home. I was beaten up by the resident cat and I was also very frightened of the dogs in the home and it was decided that it was best for me to move on. I still feel very vulnerable and I spend most of my time hunkered down in a hidey bed in my cage where I know that I'm safe. I've been receptive to visitors and I'm soothed by gentle words and soft pets. I am cautiously starting to venture out from under my bed so my admirers can see my lovely face, but I'm still very unsure.

I dream each day of being an only pet in a quiet home that understands that I need a lot of love and patience to help me feel secure enough to find my true self again. I really want to become the loving kitty that I was before. It's very difficult to mend a broken spirit in the shelter environment, particularly for shy kitties, like me, who are intimidated by other animals. I know that I have so much love to give and I promise that I will be the best girl in the world. Won't you please give me a chance?
