Sage

Name: Sage

Age: 1 year

Breed: DSH Gray

Sex: Female

Silky soft, pewter colored, and with a quiet rumble of a purr, one year old Sage is enchanting. She is, however, probably not the cat you notice first. Sage won’t call you over. She won’t try to attract your attention. She is a bit timid, and like shy kids everywhere, Sage will wait for you to make the first move. So Sage will sit in the back of her condo, partly in shadow, hoping you notice.
Many people won’t. Many people will walk by, distracted by the come hither meows of a tuxedo or the bright hues of a ginger boy dancing at the front of his condo waiting to play. To those people we might say, “their loss”. Because if you see Sage, really see her, you will almost always approach and you will be rewarded for your discernment.
After a moment of quiet conversation, you may reach out to pet this demure, smoke colored little lady. And when you do, Sage comes alive. Pushing her head into your hand, rolling over to show you her tummy, so happy, so overjoyed that you like her, and so ready to love you. That is Sage-a wallflower, but not. Reticent but eager, timid but friendly... a cat who is simply waiting to be reassured.
Sage would do best in a quieter home, with folks who have had at least some cat experience. Sage will need people who will keep her in one room to start, give her time to decompress, and then show her tons of love and reassurance. Sage has been fine with other nice, respectful cats. We don’t know about dogs, but as she is quite nervous about new things, we would suspect that Sage would do poorly with all but the most gentle and cat savvy of dogs.
