We got Esme because a friend had brought home a cat who was unknowingly pregnant and had several kittens, Esme was one of those kittens. She is sweet when she is with her primary caregivers (my wife and I), however, when we have company over or other unfamiliar animals, she can be scared and will not want to be touched or picked up by other friends or family we have over. We do have another older dog and she is fine with him. Esme is about 1 1/2 years old and is fully vaccinated. We are moving into a small apartment and will not have space for her to be with us.
