Sally Silver arrived at the sanctuary with her mom, Selena, at the end of February. Sally Silver is the sister of Silver and Silvia, who were trapped last fall near SilverCity and have since been adopted.
Raised by her feral mom, Sally Silver is not comfortable around people just yet, but Leslie has hopes that staff will be able to tame her as they were her siblings. Leslie told me an anecdote about taking a picture of Sally Silver with her phone, where she found the shy young cat crouched "hiding" in her litter box before she pressed the shutter and then sitting up and peering at her with interest directly afterward.
Here's hoping that staff and volunteers make as much progress with the taming of Sally Silver as they did with her siblings, so that this little cutie can find a nice home.
