Hi, I''m Cookie. You can imagine how scared I was being abandoned and not knowing how I would get food or water. I know I seem shy but please don''t walk by without reading more! I just need that special person who will understand that I have been through a hard time and have patience with me as I come out of my shell. I know my eyes make me look scared, but I just have big eyes! Once I''m in a home where I feel safe and comfortable my full personality will come out, I promise. Many of the staff and volunteers here have spent many hours with me here helping me feel safe. Once I''m comfortable, I love scratches around the head and neck, and I am very sweet and affectionate. I would like a relatively quiet and peaceful home, and of course want to be 100% indoors. I will be independent but also happy to have affection and love I deserve. Please ask for assistance saying hello to me. I hope you''ll be that special person who will give me a chance to be happy again.
