Suri is a beautiful domestic medium-haired white and gray tabby cat, about 2 years old. She has been waiting a while for a home because she just doesn’t show well at the adoption center. The shelter environment causes her to become overly stressed and then she wants nothing to do with meeting a potential family. Suri originally was rescued off the streets as a stray. Suri would need to be the only cat in her new home as she becomes defensive around other cats. She’d like to be the “queen” of the house and be loved on all day by her people.
