SHELBY IS CURRENTLY UNDERGOING A BEHAVIOURAL PLAN RECOMMENDED BY A BEHAVIOURIST TO HELP WITH HER CHARACTER.

Shelby came into our care after sadly not getting on with her previous owner.
Shelby is a sensitive soul who is looking for a home who understands cat behaviour and doesn't mind a cheeky cat with lots of character!
Since being at the centre it is clear Shelby doesn't like people being near or touching her things but she is desperate to trust people enough to let them! This resource guarding can be helped by an understanding owner who is happy to learn new skills in order to support Shelby's needs.
Shelby does have her affectionate and playful moments but is known to lash out when she feels tense or overwhelmed.
This full of character cat is looking for a patient, understanding and experienced home where she can be herself with the support of her owner & in the right environment.
