Chaka is our longest residing cat at the shelter coming to us over 200 days ago! Even though this 6-year old is ridiculously cute, her shyness has caused her to be overlooked. She was placed in a foster home to decompress and for her personality to be assessed in a home setting. Chaka’s foster mom spent a lot of time with her and said that she is very sweet and loves to watch the world from the windows. She will snuggle up on your lap for a nap! Chaka does not enjoy cat company at all and would probably tolerate a dog that mostly ignores her. She would do best in a low energy household with people who can appreciate her mellow but sweet nature.

Chaka is back at shelter and ready for a permanent place to call home.
