Shadow is independent cat who likes to keeps to herself. But she very calm and sweet when she wants attention. The only time I have issues with her is when it comes to food, especially treats, she tends to get very clawly when you hand her one. She also has her own schedule and is a big believer of no computers after 9pm or she will not leave you alone until you get off. She is an older cat but she tends to forget that at times and show that youthful spirit. While I would love to keep her, situations have change and she does have health issues that I can not afford to help with anymore.
