Here mousy, mousy, mousy!
Kidding! Okay, yeah, that little felt mouse is adorable, but ain't nothing like the real thing: I can be your mouser, your lap warmer, or someone who can stare at you like this for a few hours.
My name is Sheena.
I started my life in a shed, a wee, orange, brown and white tabby baby who fell into an orphan honeypot when someone found me and brought me to the Memphis & Shelby County Humane Society. Seriously, have you seen these digs? Of all the places for a waif to find shelter, this place ain't bad.
But, it's not home. It's a waiting room.
That's where you come in. I need one. I want to be your cat, and I want you to be my person. I'm waiting.
A few months after the Humane Society took me in someone adopted me. I was happy for nearly two years, but then my person decided I needed too much attention. So here I am again, homeless. Is it wrong to devote my life to giving you my undivided attention? I'm not needy; I'm just givey. I like to give away lots of tiny paw pats, affectionate head butts, and wait until you rub my ears, I lean in like a champ to make it easier for you to scratch a long time. I can stare into your eyes for hours, sit in your lap, rub my head on your hand so you don't have to move.
Here's the thing: I'm a smidge on the shy side. That doesn't mean you'll steal glimpses of me every so often as I dart past a door. Just give me a few minutes. I can quickly decide if you are a person who would appreciate my undivided attention. I'd like to live with one or two people so I can divide attention equally. I dare you to come see me and hold me for a few minutes. If you aren't smitten by this kitten (okay, corny) then I'll give you one of my teaser toys.
Once you've cuddled me and talked me, then all you have to do is fill out a wee bit of paperwork and pay my $100 adoption fee. If you ask me, it's a steal. I'm healthy, vaccinated, microchipped and spayed. I will give you a lifetime (well, my lifetime) of love and fun. Oh, I didn't tell you I come with a bag of tricks? Have you ever seen a cat bat a piece of paper on the floor or do one of those hilarious cat crab walks? I got a million ways to make you laugh.
