Beverly. (Sandy Geddry)

Beverly is a reserved cat. She’s just a little quiet until she gets to know you. When she is comfortable with you, it then becomes all about the head-scratching. Scratch behind her ears and she will be very happy to sit with you.

Beverly is fun to watch when she is sleeping. She is an acrobatic sleeper. Her caregivers frequently find her napping in odd positions. One of her favorite poses is lying with her paws above her head.

This 2 and a half year-old feline is a people pleaser. She would be a great companion to share your secrets with, because she will never repeat what she hears and she is always willing to listen.
