Pippin (118490)

Employee: Nahja B.

Pippin's on the lookout for bed-time snuggles...Here are Nahja's sweet sentiments about Pippin:

"Pippin was brought in by her previous owner in April of 2013. She was described as an independent kitty, but we were also told that she can be extremely affectionate at bed time. My heart breaks a little bit when I think about how Pippin has been missing her bed-time snuggles for over a year now.

Pippin enjoys being brushed, and will even drop her fancy-lady facade to play with a feather toy from time to time. Check out the adorable video of Pippin to find out why she is described as a "self-assured," "wise," "beautiful," and "chillaxin'" cat!

Pippin's previous owner shared with us that Pippin can be shy around strangers, and that it would take about an hour for her to warm up to visitors at the house. I think this is the main reason why Pippin is still here at the shelter. She's not the type of kitty who puts on a great show in front of potential adopters - but that doesn't mean she won't warm up to you! She just needs a little time to settle in, and maybe get a good night's sleep on a cozy bed.

It's true, we do our best to offer an abundance of love and care to animals during their stay with us. But, as Pippin knows, there's simply no place like (your) home."

Please come meet this special girl at our San Diego Campus on Gaines Street!
