Adopt Shere a All Black Domestic Mediumhair / Domestic Shorthair / Mixed cat in
Terre Haute, IN
This little girl is Shere, a beautiful little house panther. Now Shere is going to need a special mom and dad. She's going to need folks who won't mind going a long time without seeing her, who will be so very patient when she runs and hides from them. Shere was a feral kitten and was brought in when she was about 6 weeks old. Unfortunately for her, that was too late to socialize her to human company. She's not afraid of humans, she just doesn't really like us. She's been living in my house since August 30th, and at first, I had her in a wire crate in my living room, where she could see everybody, and watch all the kitties and kittens playing and getting cuddles. I would take her out of the crate and cuddle her in my arms, but she just didn't seem to like that. After a week or two, I released her, and she now roams the house, and loves to play with my other foster kittens. Shere comes to the kitchen to eat, but won't stay if a human comes in. She uses the litter box, and even sleeps in my bed with the other kitties. If she is lying next to one of my cats, I can stroke her, if I start off by stroking my kitty and then moving over to her. She won't let me pick her up unless I'm able to gently grab her. Then, she will lie in my arms and I've even heard her purr. Shere will make someone a wonderful little kitty, but it will take a long, long, time. Some day, she will jump up on the couch beside you, and you will have a kitty who will love you to the very end. Please consider giving her a chance.
