Description: Rita is a very sensitive girl who needs a quiet home where she can feel safe and secure. Rita was adopted out from our shelter many years ago as a tiny little kitten, but then brought back in 2009, utterly paralyzed from fear. She has slowly begun to trust some of the volunteers, but will probably always be a fearful cat. Rita would do best with someone who has the patience and love to give her time to adjust to a new home where she can happily live out the rest of her life.
