The Basics: I’m Phoebe, and I’m an introverted girl who needs a special home to help me blossom. I’ve had some ups and downs in my life lately: For a long time, I had a home—but when that home started to be renovated and a baby showed up, I started having litter box issues. Ever since I came to Animal Aid and went into a quiet, low-key foster home, I haven’t had any litter box problems.
I’m a sensitive lady who startles easily, and I tend to hide for a long time before I warm up to new people. I just really like things calm and

predictable. I’ve been in foster since late March, and I’ve only recently started to jump up onto my foster mom’s lap at night and ask for petting. I also have a sensitive stomach, so I eat a prescription Z/D dry food. I have early signs of kidney disease (which is fairly common in older cats) and a mild heart murmur that hasn’t been a medical problem. I used to be hyperthyroid, but I had radiation treatment to cure me of that some years ago.
Likes: I thrive in a quiet home and tend to prefer women’s voices to men’s voices. It’s important for me to have a safe place to hide where my person can still reach me and give me attention. I absolutely love to be brushed, enjoy cardboard scratchers, and like to be social in the evenings. Once I’m feeling comfortable, I will ask for petting and like to sleep at the foot of the bed or curled up next to you. You can even pick me up like a baby and trim my nails if you are my chosen person.
Dislikes: I want to be an only child, which for me means no other animals and no children, please.
Looking for: A quiet, adult-only home with cat-savvy people who will show me TLC and give me attention on my terms.
My estimated birth date is 3/6/2010.
