I’m Sophie…soft, sweet and social!
Why we love Sophie–and you should too!
“Hi, my name is Sophie and I was transferred from another shelter where I was crowded in with other cats. If you know anything about me, you know I don’t even like cats! Life so far has not been a walk in the park… Yet. I was originally adopted elsewhere and returned years later. My old owners were not the nicest and often chased me with a broom to get my our of somewhere. Because of this, it takes me a little while to settle in to new environments and trust new people. If you take the time to communicate with me and learn my language – my walls come crumbling down.
I love to be around you. Snuggling up on your lap for the night or keeping your feet warm at night are two things I am really good at. Don’t get me wrong, I love being around you but I am also independent. I won’t bug you constantly for attention when you are busy or scream at you from another room. I will wait patiently for you to come play with me or give me some chin scratches. I am big girl and an independent woman, so I don’t think I will ever enjoy being picked up… It’s not really my thing. My previous cat-crazed environment has me craving the comforts of a quiet home where I can relax with my paws up and my guard down!
It may take me time to adapt to a new environment but once I know I am safe and loved you will see that instead of Sophie the scared, I’m Sophie the social softie!
