Meet Claire! We’ve only had Claire in our care for a short time, but this is what we’ve found out about this sweetie so far. Claire is a beautiful female gray cat with gray stripes. She is very shy, but does seek attention and has made progress from her first week of hiding. Coaxing her with treats brought her out of seclusion for some pets and now she doesn't need treats to get close enough to pet!

She is still pretty skittish so we need to approach her slowly. We’ve noticed she is very easily startled as well. She's cautiously curious about the resident cats and does explore until something startles her, then she retreats to her room again. One of her favorite pastimes so far is lazing at a sunny window.

Claire is getting more brave all the time and is waiting to feel safe and loved at her forever home.

Claire is a stray that transferred from a small rescue in western MN. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
