Shy Shae has blossomed into an exuberant and sweet kitten who is sure to capture your heart.

Shae: April 8, 2020 – Female Kitten

A gorgeous tabby kitten with green eyes and a white tipped tail, Shae a beautiful and sweet girl who is ready for her next adventure! Although she used to be afraid, Shae now loves people!

Shae: April 8. 2020 – Gorgeous green eyes and white tip tail.

Shae comes from the Game of Thrones cat community, who all live in a barn in the general Rutland area. The community is well fed, and many of the adults are friendly, but the farmer asked us to help find them their own Forever Families.

Shae was rescued from our Games of Thrones barn when she was about 8 weeks old. She had seen people, but had never really been handled. Shae reacted to being in a home with fear. She would hide, run from her foster mom, and cower in the corner. A few days after arriving in foster care, Shae stopped eating due to an upper respiratory tract infection. She went downhill very quickly and required daily meds, fluids, and force feeding/supplements. Even though she was terrified of us, she let us help her. Never once did she claw or bite anyone, she just shook with fear.

Fast forward to today. Shae has realized that people are pretty amazing! They give you food and they have these things on the end of their arms that can give THE BEST massages! Shae now comes running TO her foster mom, purring loudly. She shoves her little shoulders up in the air and pushes into all the loving. Shae LOVES her shoulders scratched.
