Profile ~ 11/17/16
Sheba is a 5 year old spayed Gray Tabby & White DSH that has a bad left eye since she was a kitten but no other medical issues. Previous owner has had Sheba since she was a kitten and could no longer keep her due to financial issues.
According to the previous owner, around strangers, Sheba is very shy and will not be around when they are in the home. Around adults & children, Sheba is respectful and relaxed and plays in a gentle manner. She has been around several cats (males & females) and she is relaxed and respectful and plays in a gentle manner. Sheba has been around dogs and she is fearful. She would avoid interaction. She has never bitten a person or another animal before.
Previous owners stated that Sheba does not have any behavioral or litter box issues. When the previous owner would bathe Sheba or trim her nails, she would be afraid and struggle to get free. Sheba isn’t bothered by having her coat brushed. Sheba allows being picked up and held but she will attempt to struggle free immediately. Sheba struggles when being put into a carrier due to not liking being handled.
For a New Family to Know:
Sheba is described as shy, affectionate, mellow, and playful with a high activity level. When in the home, Sheba is the type to do her own thing and be in her favorite spots and rarely seek attention only is she feels like it. She does not play with toys.

She was fed Blue dry & wet cat food. Sheba also used a scratching post that was made from rough rope, cardboard, & fabric.
