I had an owner but they did not have time for me so they brought me to the shelter hoping I will get a new home. I am a little worried because I am eight years old; maybe you won’t want me because of that. I would love to be a member of your family; I was never permitted in the house of my previous owner so I felt left out. Dogs are pack animals and we are happiest when we are part of the family. I am very friendly with children and like other dogs. I never lived with cats. I don’t want to be sitting outside looking in; it is a lonely place to be. Oh how wonderful it would be to snuggle with you everyday. Maybe you will permit me to have a bed in your room so I won’t feel lonely at night. I want a chance at happiness as part of your family, will you take me in? I am a four year old neutered Blue Russian cat; my owner had too many cats so I ended up at the shelter. We Blue Russian cats are known to be devoted to our family and loved ones. We are shy and nervous around strangers so you can understand why I may appear nervous at the shelter. I have lived with other cats and dogs but not children. I am anxious to get out of here because I am a little scared; it is noisy in the shelter. I love to play and I may even play fetch with you as my breed is known for that. I know what it is like to have a home so shelter life is difficult. Please consider giving me chance to become part of your family.
