​We need a foster who can work with Emma she may be semi-feral or just scared she has a URI and she needs out.  She is super cute!!!!  Any cat whispering fosters out there willing to work with Emma to see who she is?​
We are pulling her today.  she has  a slight cold they are putting meds in her food.

OK. This cat needs help out from North Central. She needs out. Do you have somewhere she can settle down and confirmed sweet?

Hi Orly,

I'm worried about Emma at North Central. She has a behavior mark and does indeed have behavior issues. She will not let anyone pet her, she growls and swipes her paw at you if you try . She wasn't interested in string and didn't eat her treats. Clearly a very, very scared kitty. I don't see how she'll make it out unless someone with a big heart rescues her. Unless she has a change of heart. At the shelter since 12/28, so it's possible that she'll come around, however, she needs someone to work with her. :(

Here's what I wrote about her: Emma is a stunning 1 yr. old gray tabby female, weighing about 7 lbs. We're afraid this girl is going to need someone extra-special to come adopt her. Someone who is patient and willing to give Emma the space and security she needs in order to feel safe. Right now, she's feeling vulnerable and scared and will not let anyone pet her or approach her without growling and swiping her paw. She's such an observant kitty and watches all that goes on with her big eyes. She usually has one ear cocked in the other direction, listening for signs of danger. It's clear that she's on high alert being in the shelter with all the new sounds and smells and doesn't know who to trust yet. She is quite simply scared and needs someone to look past that and to love her anyway.


Thanks! K
