Amber

The newest resident of the cat sanctuary arrived just three days ago via the No. 5 Rd. Shelter.


Presumably being given the name Amber because of the colour of her eyes, this pretty girl is so scared that it's impossible to tell if she's semi-feral or tame but too frightened to act it.

I'm posting this now as the "before" picture. Hopefully I'll be able to post an "after" picture where she looks happier... or at least has both ears pointing forward.
Wish us luck!
