Shimmy is estimated to have been born in 2004. She came to the farm in 2008 after being found having been abandoned in a mobile home. Shimmy can sometimes be misunderstood. She is a very strong personality who can sometimes come off as very standoffish or grumpy but when someone really takes their time to get to know her, they end up falling in love with her. Shimmy has a very strong sense of confidence and honesty. She has made it very clear that she prefers the company of humans more than other cats and she also has her boundaries about how much petting is enough. Shimmy has a very loud meow but an even louder purr. While someone could make the mistake to label her as ornery, she simply is a cat with a big heart who simply asks that others respect her space.
