**SAFE 07/08/16** Good with the kiddos in her former home and a huge fan of watching the outside world through her favorite window, CAMELIA was purchased at a pet store when she was 2 months old. That was close to 3 years ago, and CAMELIA has been loving one family unconditionally for all that time. Those happy days were lost in an instant on June 22nd, when her former owner decided CAMELIA’s upkeep was too costly. Cats are not really known for demanding parasailing lessons and an Ivy League education, so it’s difficult to view them as a truly expensive pet. In any event, that person’s decision about “costs” is going to COST CAMELIA HER LIFE, tomorrow, unless a foster/adopter steps up for her tonight!

As per previous owners, Camelia has lived with children ages 5 & 12 and was relaxed and gentle with them. Around strangers she’s a little nervous and will hide underneath the bed. After a few days she come around towards the new guests and will greet them. She’s described as being playful, affectionate, shy and enjoys playing with her mouse toys. Camelia enjoys looking out the window for hour and doesn’t mind being held or placed in a carrier. Reaction to assessor: Camelia is at the front of the kennel and is wary of her surroundings. Reaction when softly spoken to: Camelia lays motionless and has wide eyes focused on the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Camelia moves back slowly. Reaction to touch: Camelia hisses as you approach and moves to the back of the kennel. She tolerates petting on her head then whips around and hisses when touched on her body. Camelia starts to lip lick and is not comfortable touched along her body. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Camelia tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his or her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
