    My name is Fuega(Spanish for 'Fire') and I am between 3-4 months old. My momma is Amara. I am unsure about people because I have very little experience with them. I run and hide when people approach me. I do get along with other cats. Fancy is my best friend at the shelter. I would do good in a home with another cat or kitten so I have someone to play with and teach me how to act with people. I need someone to give me a chance to come out of my shell and blossom into a radiant feline. Please come adopt me!
