Hi, my name is Tess. I’ve had a bit of a rough go recently and the story of how I ended up here is quite sad. My previous owner was a very nice older lady. I used to love sitting on her lap and sitting in the window, just watching the world pass by. It was a great home that I had all to myself; I was declawed when I was very young so the fact that I was the only cat that lived with her was great for me as I didn’t need to worry about defending myself from other animals. Being declawed has made me a little shy with others, and I can take some time to warm up to new people. Other cats make me insecure but I might be able to get used to one other cat as long as I didn't have to be fearful. My previous owner died and I was put in a shelter. But now, I have a hole in my heart that needs to be filled as I need someone to show my affection to again. I’d love to be your forever kitty if you’re willing to have me.
