Cleopatra

Cleopatra is your typical shy girl who trusts those who are nice to her and show her love. She does take some time to come around, but will never leave you alone after she does. She will throw herself against you to signal that she wants some attention and is sweet to everyone and dislikes no one. She enjoys attention and scratches behind the ear. She passes the time by watching her surroundings, while talking here and there to get our attention. Cleopatra would love a forever home for forever!
