Feona is a very beautiful cat that almost has an orange tint to her fur. She is a 4 year old grey tiger DSH. When Feona first came in she was very timid and liked to hide under anything in her cage. If she had a bed she was under it at all times. She felt safe there. Throughout the days of being here she now is coming out of her cage and is playing in play groups. She no longer hides and loves attention. She would probably do best in a house without other cats, just because she is a bit more timid and would love all the attention herself.
