"My Cherie Amour, lovely as a summer day"...do you remember that pretty song? Bonjour! My name is Amour, which everyone knows means "love" in French. My name fits me, since I am full of love and affection. I spent my first weeks here in a regular cat cage and was quite shy. Then I was moved into the free-roaming cat condo with other cats and a huge fish tank. The condo is like charm school for shy, nervous, or reclusive cats. It works like a charm! At first, I would hide, and wasn't very social, but after a while I actually liked my new accommodations! I slowly mingled with my condo mates and started to play with all the toys. Now, I'm a totally different cat! I'm friendly, outgoing, and affectionate. I prance up to staff, volunteers, and visitors alike for attention and pets. When anyone walks by our big window, I run along beside them, hoping they will stop in and play. Right now, I'm the most playful kitty in the condo! I can't get enough of the mouse on the string, and the feather wand is a ton of fun. I get along well with the other cats, and am always pleasant and delightful. This pixie girl changed from shy and nervous to bright and bubbly! Living in the condo is comfortable and fun, and I never feel lonely, but a real home would make my heart so happy. I've waited nine months, a long time to be in a shelter, so could you be the one to give me my first, forever home? "My Cherie Amour, pretty little one that I adore, you're the only one my heart beats for, I wish that you were mine"! I hope you will feel this way about me when we meet each other! Please come in to visit soon!
