7 Years

Emmie is a 7 y.o. Himalayan who was given up by an owner who had too many cats. The owner reports that she did well with the other cats although seemed unsure of how to play with them sometimes. She also did well with their dog (dachshund) and does well with children. Emmie would prefer to not be picked up, but will happily receive affection in the form of petting. She is a bit nervous at the shelter and can often be found in high up in a cubby in the cat adoption room. Emmie was born with deformed front feet (genetic birth defect), her owner may need to pay special attention to her nails and not let them grow too long, other than that, she manages just fine!
