Hi. My name is Dalene and I'm 1 ½ years old. Oh, I hope my new home has other cats. The best thing would be if someone adopts me and one of my best friends, - Candy and Flint. Being an only cat sounds too lonely for me. At the shelter, I like to snuggle with (and I even sleep on) my cat friends. If I'm honest, I need other cats because I have a bit of anxiety. I just get so nervous around new people and in new situations. I definitely don't want kids in my home; they're just too noisy and unpredictable. I like when people pet me, although I feel a little nervous about it sometimes. People say I'm very pretty and they like my lynx point ears, but then they see I'm a scaredy cat and they adopt someone else. I know I need to be patient. I need someone very special to adopt me; someone who is willing to take things very, very slowly and help me learn to trust. Could that be you?

Please come meet me in the purple adoption room.
