Hey there! My name is Chit Chat. I live
with two of my sisters here at the shelter.
I feel very safe and am very affectionate
when I’m around them... but sometimes
when I am by myself I can be very timid.
I am looking for someone who will be
gentle and patient with me. Even though
I am shy, I do have a very sweet and
playful disposition. I love it when people
come in and play with us using wand
toys! I sometimes forget all of my fears
when I see a wand toy waving about and
will come out of my hiding spot just to
participate in the fun! Why don’t you come visit me so you can have fun too?
Maybe we will fi nd that we are a purrfect fi t!
