I’m Shayla, I’m 8 yrs old and have spent 7 yrs in the shelter. I know it’s because I’m afraid of people and sometimes hiss at them, but now that there are only 3 cats left and a lot of volunteers, they are working with me. I’m getting better about being pet and I am coming out of hiding more. I love to sit in the sun and play with toys when no one else is around. I’m desperately looking for that special person that will take me into their home and not expect a lot from me. Someone that will just let me live quietly with them , and who knows maybe once I get into a home I could become a whole new cat. After all , 8 yrs is a long time to live in a shelter!
