Avery loves pets and chin scratches but youll probably be the one to initiate the first move because she is a bit shy. She tends to hide under chairs or watch you from way up high on a cubby until she feels comfortable with you. She is extremely gentle and good natured and we think once shes in a home and feels safe she will be more outgoing. Avery would do best in a quiet home with older kids who wouldnt frighten her. She does fine with other cats.
