Selena is the mom of Silver, Silvia, and Sally Silver. Silver and Silvia came to the sanctuary last fall, and RAPS staff were recently able to trap their mom and sister.
As you may have guessed from Selena's expression in the photo, she's feral. Being an adult makes her less likely to tame up than her kittens, so she'll being moving from the Connor building where she is now to the back pens where she can have as much interaction with other shy cats as she likes and won't be forced into closer proximity to humans than she's comfortable. Of course we'll be there for her, ready to make friends when and if she decides she's ready to give us a chance.
