Evidently Shelly didn't get a lot of loving in her former life. She accepts pets, but seems a bit confused by them. Nothing that some gentle loving won't fix! She is settling into her foster home nicely and likes to explore and play when the humans aren't around. We think as she gets more comfortable she will increasingly come out of her shell. She just needs a patient person who will encourage her and earn her trust. Then it will be time for her to truly sparkle!

How about taking this little girl home and showing her what true love feels like? Every kitty deserves to know! Contact us for an introduction and be the kind soul to put the joy in Shelly Joyner!


Shelly Joyner has tested positive for Feline Leukemia. FeLV is not a type of cancer. It's a virus that causes a weaker immune system and often a shorter life-span. For the most part, 'FeLVies' are just like any other cat. APA! waives the adoption fees of these cats, and provides FeLV-related treatment and support post-adoption. Shelly Joyner can only live with other FeLV+ cats, but dogs and other animals are just fine! Any questions? We'd love to talk with you about Shelly Joyner's care.

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
