I came to rescue after winding up at animal services when my previous owner moved and abandoned me in the house!
When I first meet new people, I prefer to keep to myself and learn the lay of the land before making friends. So, I will need a "fur"ever family that will be willing to accept me into their home and allow me to just be me for a week or two while I get comfortable in my new surroundings.
Once I figure out who everyone is and where my favorite spots are, I do begin to open up and make friends. You see having been abandoned before makes it hard for me to trust new things. So, I have to know for sure that my new family won't give up on me before I can relax.
But if you are willing to be patient with me, I will show you my softer side and even smile for you!
