After meeting sweet little Maizy, memories from my childhood came flooding back. I recall the Golden Book The Shy Little Kitten and how the story focused on one little striped kitten who was very, very shy. Though our Maizy might not be a kitten and has muted stripes, she is quite shy.
Each day her feeling of self-confidence is growing. Through the attention and love of the volunteers, she is venturing out of her cage, interacting with people and investigating other cat residents. She loves ear rubs, will nuzzle into your hand, and bats her gorgeous eyes at you.
