Hi, I'm Sofie! I am a super sweet and shy 10-year-old kitty cat. I was recently rescued from a shelter after my owner passed away. I am now in a foster home, learning to trust new people, and making great progress. 
My foster mom says that I am regal and brave. She thinks I'm a Russian Blue, whatever that means. I am affectionate. I sleep under the covers with my foster mom every night and purr myself to sleep while curled up beside her. I occasionally get a rare playful burst of energy and I roll around on my back and grab a nearby catnip-filled toy. But snuggling is really my favorite past time. 
I can be a real talker. I frequently make little chortling and chatting noises. (I just get so excited to see her and can't help but chirp and meow.) I like to give sweet little kisses too. 
When I get the courage to explore, I like to peek around corners and move from room to room in stealth mode. If anyone moves too quickly or I hear a noise, then I go back to hiding. I hide with strangers and kids too.
I was with another cat in my last home. And my new foster home has a cat and two dogs but they scare me right now. Maybe with a cat-savvy dog and a little time, I can warm up to a dog.
I always use my litter box. I'm getting some dental cleaning done soon then I'll be ready for my forever home. I'm a very good, shy kitty cat. Hit me up if you want to meet me.
