(Arrival Date: 04/12/2016)

I’m a 5 year old “plus size" gal with a lot of love to match. I love attention, but only once I’ve warmed up to you. I am quite shy, but after some time with you my shell opens up. I’ll let you pet me, but I like to lounge by myself sometimes.  I’m pretty easy to care for, just give me a warm bed to sleep in (what I like to do best), food, water and occasional treats and I’m happy. I love for you to talk to me, but not necessarily the kind of feline that likes to be “cuddled". Unfortunately I’ve been in the shelter for just over 4 years because I don’t always make the best “showing" when we first meet. If you’re looking for a furbaby to fill that empty space in your heart and home, give me a try.

About Us

Improve your life and that of a cat, too, with adoptions from our animal shelter in Chesapeake, Virginia. The Animal Assistance League (AAL) was formed in response to the vast number of animals put to death each year by local shelters. We adhere to the philosophy that no adoptable animal should be euthanized. We are caring and compassionate and show deep concern for animals.

We Depend on You

Our animal shelter is a privately funded, nonprofit organization that receives no taxpayer money. This is why we depend on members and donors to help us fund our services.
