Hi, I'm Gnidora, the "fixer upper" cat. Yes, I needed some work, but I've made great strides...some "inner remodeling" you might say! In fact, I'm a totally different cat than the terrified tabby that arrived back in September! I came here with a large group of cats and I was one of the painfully shy and fearful ones. I would not even venture out of my box! I was a "caver", spending most of my time hiding. The loving staff spent a lot of time socializing me, and now I will even let people pet me! In fact, I love attention and being petted! When I was moved out of my cage and into the free-roaming cat condo, the positive transformation began. I gradually started to come out of my shell and enjoy people's company and affection. I win the "Most Changed Cat" award! I've become so much more outgoing! Now I enjoy playing and am the most playful cat in the condo. It is possible I might be nervous and shy in my new home, but with patience and understanding, letting me come to you on my own terms, I should adjust quickly. I'm about 8 years old, so I hope the second half of my life will be better than the first, filled with tender loving care and someone to see the beauty that lies within my heart. Over the past six months, I've been saving up a lot of love to give to my new family!
