My name is Layla, meaning daughter of the night. I am a dainty, beautiful, black girl cat, born in 2013.

Sadly, I was relinquished because my family moved overseas for military deployment. I guess we all have to make sacrifices. The stress of the shelter is hard on me, so forgive me if I occasionally respond in an irritable manner. I am really trying to make the best of my situation. I really want loving human attention, but I need time to get to know you. On the other hand I really love treats and playtime with laser or wand toys. They say that I am a very smart and curious girl, who loves to explore like a kitten. I used to live with a dog, cat and children. However, I may be happiest as an only pet. I would thrive in a calm, slow-paced home.

Update: I am so happy to have been chosen for one of the solo Meow Manor rooms. I am calmer and happier in my new room. I love the catio. I am even becoming a lap cat. Please go slowly in getting to know me, let me guide the way. I am hypersensitive on my back, so be careful with petting me in that area. That said I do love human company so much. I would blossom in a calm, loving home. I have been waiting for a home a while now. Gratefully I am also eligible for foster.

Please stop by to visit me, beautiful Layla. You will recognize me readily, because I greet visitors by chirping at the door of my room. Remember to close the door quickly, because I just may dart out to explore. Don't forget to bring a treat.
