Carvel transferred to us from another rescue that was closing and needed help. She is a shy girl that will require some trust before opening up. Carvel was adopted for about 7 months and lived with another cat, but they didn't get along. Despite her doing well with other cats here at the shelter, we want her to thrive in her new home as the queen of the palace! She is curious even if reluctant so we expect she will eventually feel comfortable in her forever surroundings. Her past family states that she really prefers when things are calm and she has areas where she can seek refuge when feeling nervous like a cat tree, hidey bed or cozy spot. She does allow gentle pettings and can often be found curled up in a basket or soft bed. Carvel is not a big fan of being held. Her past family also mentioned that Carvel inappropriately urinated in the house when nervous, but we have not seen that happening at the shelter and her urinalysis was normal. Perhaps, that will not be the case as an only cat but we want to encourage her new family to have adequate litter box options so this behavior does not reemerge. This cutie is hoping for a patient adopter to give her a chance to shine!
