Hi. My name is Cotton Candy. I came to Lakeland animal shelter when I was just a baby - one month old. Now, I'm around 7 months old. In people years, that's about maybe the age of a preschool child. I love the shelter, but some of the cats scare me a bit. I guess you could say I'm a sensitive soul - dominant cats are too much for me. I'd love to live with other cats, but I'm nervous I might be bullied, so other cats would have to be very kind and friendly around me. My favorite thing about LAS is meeting new people. I love pets and attention. I even like to snuggle and get belly rubs once I trust you. But please don't pick me up - that's too scary! Just take it slow when you first meet me. If you adopt me, let me acclimate to my new surroundings slowly, in just one room at first for a while. I think I would like kids a lot, but they have to be able to not over-handle me and read my signals when I'm unhappy (faster tail swings, ears back, etc.) and remember to not pick me up. I'm tiny, so I could get hurt very easily. So, if kids are in the home, they should be over 6 years old or so. I'd probably feel better in a quieter environment and would need areas in the home where I can get away. Some people put up cat trees or baby gates, so I can have my alone time. If you think you are the right family for me, please come meet me in the Purple adoption room.
