I was called "Noel" because I arrived on Christmas Day. I am an extremely well-behaved beautiful 4-year-old brown & grey tabby female. I am fastidiously clean - I never drop one crumb of food on the ground, nor knock out any of litter on the floor. (Probably because I am not used to having anything, so nothing can go to waste!) I used to have a home where I was spayed and looked after. However, I have spent the hardest past three years of my life - starving & barely surviving outside...... I slept in pile of leaves in the fall, but winter was more difficult. I couldn't drink because the water was frozen and there was nowhere warm to sleep. As a result of my hard life, I lost a few teeth and am missing my lower canine. I would love to be adopted into a nice warm home with a loving family that would make me trust humans again. I am very shy. If you are gentle and kind with me, I will let you pat me. Once I trust you, I will be your most devoted companion for life. Confirmed FIV negative.
