Under The Spotlight
Adopted from NCAL as a kitten, Wildflower has been a bit of a wallflower since making her way back to the shelter. Slightly hesitant and unsure, but when coaxed out from hiding, she will gently rub against your legs, and lean in for head rubs and back strokes. Her prior home described her as snuggly, not very interested in playing, and a wonderful mouser. Wildflower’s ideal forever home would be fairly low-key, and one where she can be your one and only pet to dote on. Please give Wildflower the chance to bloom!
