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.
