Meet Bashful

Meet Bashful, a shy but affectionate darling whose predilection for cheek rubs goes beyond anything we’ve ever witnessed! She takes a while to come out of her shell, and while she’s not fond of being on laps, the purr machine is quick to turn on for pets and brushing. She is approximately 8 years old.

This tuxedo short-haired lady with a kinked tail is quick to inform you of her feelings and opinions verbally. She's a big fan of ostriching, aka shoving her head into crevices. She’s also the old hand at biscuit making and accepts nail trimming (mostly) in peace. The best way into her heart is via brushing vigorously—she will lean her whole body into it.

What Bashful’s looking for in a home:
- She’s new to indoor life with humans, so she needs a kind and patient guide to help her continue adjusting. Loud noises, fast movements, and strangers make her nervous.
- She’ll need extra time and TLC to build trust.
- She feels at ease in a quiet and calm environment.
- She needs to live indoors only.
- She has no known history with dogs.
- She has no known history with children.

All Alley Cat Projects cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated prior to adoption.
