Meet Latara (121)
Meet sweet little Latara! Latara came to us from a difficult situation and is slowly getting used to humans. She is searching for a special kind of forever family that is willing to be patient with her and help her feel more safe and confident. She is used to being around other cats and would do best with another cat friend in the home to help her settle. Sweet Latara absolutely loves tube treats and wet food and it is a good tool to use to help positively desensitize her to people. She may like to hide, but once she knows she is in a safe home she very much enjoys gentle pets.
If Latara seems like a good fit for you please follow the application steps below.:
