I am the bravest girl in the world! Let me tell you my story. My name is Phaedra & I was so anxious when I got here I had to hide in a little cat hut 24/7. I was uncomfortable being touched & didn't have a lot of faith in human types. I would peer out & look around but it was really, really scary. So I watched & I waited.But world, LOOK AT ME NOW!!! This Girl is on Fire a la Alicia Keyes & Jennifer Lawrence & I am ready for the (quiet) utopia you will provide (minus any hunger games if you please...I am very attached to my fishies.) I am beautiful & gentle, sweet & soft. And I want to go home with you. Right about now.

My name is Celestial because my eyes shine like stars! I love being close to my person and getting gentle pets. I am a little unsure about things right now, so I will look to you for guidance. I would really appreciate someone who will work with me to develop some confidence. Due to my fearfulness, it might take me a little bit to develop trust. I enjoy walking on the leash, and I appear to be alright with cats. I'm gentle, sweet and waiting for you! Come meet me today!
