Meet Boots, this beautiful gal has come a long way since arriving in our care. When Boots first got here you couldn’t get anywhere near her. She was so frightened of people she would lash out to try and protect herself. Staff and volunteers spent countless hours trying to gain the trust of this very scared kitty. We are so happy to say Boots now enjoys the company of people! She will lean into your hand and purr so hard she drools. If she really trusts you she will even start rolling around and inching closer to you. Boots is still rather young and gets in the mood to play, her favorite toys are ones that have feathers on it. Boots is looking for a quiet home with out a lot of noise and chaos. Another easy going, friendly cat in the home would really help Boots to relax and continue to grow along her journey. If you think this is the gal for you then please follow the steps below to meet her.
