Hi there, my name is Pooh. I''m a gentle, sweet kitty with soft, luxurious black/gray fur. I may be a bit shy here in the shelter, but don''t pass me by!: I love to be gently petted and scratched behind the ears. All I want is a nice, warm, 'forever' home with a person or family who will take care of me, so I''ll never have to be alone again. I always try to be very brave and on my best behavior. I am perfect with my literbox! Now, I do need someone who will understand that I tend to get frightened and bashful in new situations. It will probably be a couple of weeks where I am timid and may even seem upset as I get acclimated-I just need the special person out there with patience and preferably cat experience to know that as time goes on I will come out of my shell and my full personality will blossom. Also, having other pets in the household might make me more nervous, so I''d probably do best if I''m an only-cat. I know some people will only consider adopting very young kittens, but six is not that old for a cat, and besides, don''t we all deserve good homes? I have a lot of years left and a lot of love to give. I''m also already spayed, which means I could go home with you right away. Though a visit here won''t show off my full personality-which will be a product of your tender-loving-care over time-I hope you''ll meet me and considering opening your heart and home to a deserving kitty.
