Hi. My name is Ashley and I'm 8 years old. I lived outside for a long time. Now, living inside is wonderful. But with so many strangers coming in and out of the adoption room, I feel scared all the time. I hope I get adopted soon. When I do find a home, I might need another cat to make me feel safe. I love my friends who came here with me, Tommy and Sunshine, best of all, but I get along with all cats. I'd rather live with adults who don't rush me, as I need time to warm up to new people and situations. I'm afraid no one is ever going to adopt me because I'm shy. I just need a special someone willing to work with me slowly.

Please give me a chance. Feeling safe - living in a warm home with caring people, that would be my dream come true.
