Tribecca, Bitzer, and Haiku are extremely shy - making them less visible to potential adopters, though they've been waiting for a home for more than 2 years. These three girls came to the shelter together in 2015, when they were estimated to be 2-3 years old (though they may actually have been older, making them at least ~5 years old now). They had been left to themselves in a single room without much human interaction and then abandoned.
All three have come a long way since their days of hiding in cat beds in the back of a cage. The tortie is the shyest and, though she often hides behind another cat, she is also now amenable to a head pat or two. Bitzer, the tiger, allows head scritches for treats and seeks out attention if she wants to know she's not alone. Both of these cats are often found on top of the cages, snuggling with whatever other cats are available.
But the calico has made the most progress and is the most independent - she seeks out attention for treats and food. She's gained quite a bit of weight because of her fearless scrounging in other cats' spaces. She's often found running around the ground level, going from food bowl to food bowl and begging volunteers and visitors for treats, but too much activity and she hides.
Each of these cats requires a quiet, patient, and understanding home. Though they love being around other cats, and they may tolerate smaller quiet dogs, they are fearful of quick movements and loud noises. So we recommend households with no children or larger/active animals where they'll be kept indoors and loved for who they are.
