Ever feel like no one sees you for who you really are? Well after growing up at the shelter since June, I can seriously relate. My name is Lani (No. 49B), and I'm a 5-month-old little girl who needs a place to call home. Even though I try to be outgoing and affectionate with the visitors, I just keep getting overlooked. Maybe it's because I'm not as small or flashy as the other kittens here. I'm a really fun gal that likes to explore, play with toys and most of all cuddle with a friend. The minute I get a little love time, I'm all purrs and can look into your eyes and adore you all day. If you give me the chance to join your ohana, I promise to see you every day for whom you really are. My hero!
