Yang is waiting for a home at the Elgin St shelter ready for adoption. Ying and Yang had been in Marilyn's foster home since mid February.

Update August 17, 2016: Colleen, one of the shelter volunteers writes, "Hi I'm Yang. I came to TAAG last November when a very kind human spotted my sister Yin and I outside. We were starving and eating bird seed to try and survive. Then the nice woman with the traps at TAAG caught us and brought us to a foster home. My sister Yin is still there and I am at the shelter now. I was so happy to be warm and have food to eat and water to drink! Like Cinnamon I am cage free and can go about as I like, but when there are lots of people and commotion around I like to hide between the cages. I am very shy and timid after having lived the beginning of my life outside and suffering such hardships, but I am getting braver every day. In the evenings I often come out from hiding for my wet food and treats, and I have even let some of the humans pet me! When no humans are around I roam around the shelter a lot and visit the other kitties that live here. Two of the other cats here, Caitlyn and Robin, take care of me, and lay with me in between the cages so I don’t feel afraid or lonely. They sometimes feel shy too, so we have lots in common! I really love them, they help me feel calm and happy and are great cuddlers! Sometimes I like to hang out on top of the cages in the comfy beds that are up there and snuggle up, but that is better in the winter time. I am only about nine months old so I think I am being pretty brave and getting more comfortable in my surroundings every day. The volunteers here always tell me I am very sweet and have big, kind eyes, and seem like something called ‘an old soul’. I think if there was a home out there that was quiet and calm and had a very special human who would be patient with me and help me learn to trust them and feel safe in a new home I could become a real love bug, maybe even a lap cat one day! I was pretty young when I came to live indoors so I bet in no time I will be a regular social butterfly. I bet other cats would really help me adjust too; I sure like their company. If you come down to the shelter, take a peek between the cages and say hello, maybe you will realize I am your special cat!"
