Shelby is a healthy and beautiful strictly indoor spayed cat who needs a home without children. She is 11, but is sleek and healthy. Shelby has always been timid in our home until our other cat died last year. Then she began to come out more often. We were so glad until she began having anxiety about our children. A home without other cats, dogs or children would be needed for her to be stress-free. And patience until she can warm up to you.She is a quiet cat who is fine alone during the day and doesn't scratch furniture or carpet. As soon as the kids are out of the house or in bed she comes out to visit; wanting some petting or attention. She will not approach you when you are standing up and may be good for someone concerned about tripping over their cat.We don't want to surrender her to a shelter so please consider if Shelby could be for you.
