Gentle Shelb Cat Wants to Meet You

Posted in Fundraising

I’m adoptable!

Three-year-old Shelb is the first cat to affectionately greet visitors at our Tucson CARES residential shelter and we’d love to introduce you!

She does all the cat things, but in such a gentle way. She’ll sleep at your head each and every night, yet is also independent. She requests drinks from the sink, but only with a pleading stare–the kind you can never say no to–head down, eyes up, with such sincerity and hope.

She once belonged to an animal control officer and came to us with her bonded companion Lalila who was on a medical deadline. We had to say goodbye to Lalila due to complications from a diabetes related heart condition which was hard for Shelb who never left her side.
