Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Nyx, named for a Greek goddess of the night, is about a year old. Nyx, much like her namesake, is very much a quiet, shadowy figure. Nyx is probably best described as a "Private Investigator" she will work undercover to keep an eye on you and your household. She's so good, you may not even know you're under surveillance. She'll vanish into thin air if anyone or anything interferes with her investigation. Nyx may thrive in a household that accepts her as she is, and lets her do her own thing. Nyx prefers her bed to be high up, so she can see what's coming. Nyx's previous life was most likely that of a community cat, this is a situation where she may thrive. Are you looking for a cat that won't let you pet her until she is completely comfortable? Are you looking for a cat that most likely will prefer life outside and possibly inside? Are you looking for a cat that you probably won't be able to cuddle with, and will need to be acclimated to your home for at least 30 days? Look no further than Nyx.
