Shelter profile: Catniss

Catniss was a bit camera shy, and chose to stay in her litter box. (Avery Jerina)

Name: Catniss

Age: 8 years old

Sex: Female

Breed: Domestic Shorthair

Catniss enjoys being held and petted, but she is reserved. She spends most of her time lying inside her litter box even though she has a bed. When she is left on the ground, she tries to run back to her cage. If she is adopted, she will need a quiet home and time to adjust to her surroundings. Catniss has been adopted before, but she was brought back to the shelter after years because her owners didn’t want her. What stayed in my mind after the visit was Catniss’s face and how she poked her head out of the cage and looked at me with her green, piercing eyes one last time before we parted with her. Catniss is already spayed, microchipped and requires her rabies vaccinations.
