Dear Santa,

I’ve been told it’s my turn to write a letter to you, so here goes. I know that I am very shy here at the shelter. I am constantly surrounded by other cats and I am not sure how I feel about that. I came from a home with over 40 cats and we were not being cared for properly. Our owner just used us to make money.

Lucky for me, I was considered “retired” and wasn’t used to make babies anymore. Then one day, I ended up at the shelter and felt better that I wasn’t in the filthy environment anymore. I even get food every day, which is something I wasn’t used to. You’ve read Mai Tai’s letter to you already, she was another resident in the home I came from.

You might wonder why I am still looking for a family; it’s been 33 months that I have been here. I am a very shy girl, and I don’t seek attention like many of the other cats do. Some might call me “crabby”, and though that might be true, I want you to know that I promise not to be like that if someone takes me home. I’d really appreciate help finding a home with no other cats, or at least ones that will give me space. I haven’t been around dogs, and don’t know how I’d react to them. I’d also like a home with no younger children.

I know I might be a little picky, but my life hasn’t been easy and I haven’t been exposed to a lot of things like most other cats have been. I am only just shy of 6 years old.

So, Santa, won’t you please help me this year? I’ve been trying really hard to be a good girl.

Your Friend, China
