In shelter Cat

Des Moines, IA, 50313
Pet name:
Domestic Short Hair
- A shy girl who has made great strides in our care; should open up nicely in a quiet, relaxed home with patience and time 

- Loves head scratches and wet food 

- Generally calm and enjoys relaxing in her hooded box where she can observe whats going on but still feel safe 

- Once she feels comfortable, she enjoys activities such as paper bags with toys and treats inside 

This cat can be fearful and may need extra time to adjust to a new home. Weve seen good progress here at the ARL, but dont be surprised if it takes several weeks for this cat to become comfortable in a new place. This cat may hide and just observe at first - maybe for quite a while - and that is perfectly normal. Young children are too much for this cat right now, so we are highly recommending a quiet, mature home. We are happy to provide post-adoption resources. If you can give this cat extra time, patience and TLC, please consider adopting! It will be so rewarding to watch them gain confidence and start enjoying all the good things in life!
