**SAFE 08/04/16** MAKE PRINCESS FEEL LIKE A PRINCESS AGAIN!!! A volunteer writes: I saw Princess trying to hide in the back of her cage, and decided to see if I could talk to her a little. She is definitely overwhelmed in the shelter, and has never been around other pets or children. She may do best in a quieter household with pet parents who have experience with cats. She did let me pet her a little, and seemed a little more relaxed after we spent a little time. I really think her name suits her, there is something that tells me she just needs to be in the right place to feel safe and start a happy new life.
