Adventure is on the horizon for Amelia!

Returning for her second tour at EHS, Amelia is ready and suited up for her next adventure! As a former colony cat, Amelia employed all the survivalist tactics she could during her exploratory years in the great outdoors. But one day while reflecting on her history of exciting adventures, she decided she was ready for a new journey that included pampering, comfort, and a safe indoor home. Amelia was then "whiskered" away to the coveted 5-paw luxury Hotel of EHS and, after being adopted in 2021, she has returned to our shelter due to no fault of her own. This intrepid gal is now ready for a permanent retreat in a warm, welcoming, indoor situation with a loving and devoted family.

This fearless feline believes she has earned the right to enjoy some creature comforts, and we agree! Her first indoor adventures with her original foster family consisted of hiding in secret caves and jumping to/from windowsills. It was evident this curious explorer was showing progress adapting to indoor living as she began charting new territory in her apartment. Now that she is back at EHS, she is continuing to demonstrate an improved comfort level around humans, allowing chin scratches with the back-scratcher and even some cautious cheek rubs with a human hand!

We know that the treasure of true companionship is sweet Amelia's desired destination! Using her stunning greenish-yellow eyes, black and white little ears, and cute pink nose to seek out trustworthy companionship, she's certainly been brave and curious enough to approach humans, both in the past and as she builds confidence at EHS. If revealing her floofy, snow white belly isn't a friendly overture, then what is?

Amelia is a skittish cat who has had minimal experience with humans. She is currently enrolled in EHS's socialization program, where dedicated volunteers are working to help her become more comfortable around people. There have been many successful graduates from this program, but potential adopters should be prepared to commit the time, effort, and patience required to help Amelia along this journey. It should be noted that while some skittish cats might remain reserved, others may express their trust and affection in a variety of ways. A skittish cat will benefit from a calm, quiet environment, preferably without small children. EHS will provide post-adoption support to assist Amelia with a successful transition to her forever home.
