Meet one of the legendary 'rafter cats' here at Best Friends! Cats like these make wonderful companions-from-afar. You can't hold them or pet them - at least, not yet. But they think and feel and love, just like the rest of us. And if you give them the chance, they can be a real part of your home. They just haven't had any experience being pets.

Persephone was born in approximately 2012 and she came to us from a hoarding situation. She's great with other cats, but particularly likes to hang out with other shy cats. She's extremely tiny and looks like a kitten.

Shy cats like these have always been an important part of Best Friends' culture. They have special spirits and deep personalities. And this beautiful cat would love to be a part of your life.
