The favorite perch of our Queen Helena is the highest part of the cat tower - it is her throne! This is where she prefers to sleep, relax, and watch over the other kitties in her group.

She might like to keep to herself a bit, but Helena appreciates attention from people, especially in the form of chin rubs! She openly expresses her wants and needs with a meow that ranges from plaintive to insistent. She loves her cheek rubs and being petted, doesn't hesitate to ask for affection, and is grateful to receive the love she deserves! She is very affectionate and perfectly-sized for your lap, though she may need to get to know you first; once she does, she will head butt you and lick your hand, happily purring and meowing.

Helena is FeLV+ (Feline Leukemia Virus), which causes a weakened immune system and requires special care. APA! provides ome medical assistance after adoption. Cats with FeLV typically have a shortened lifespan. Helena is not contagious to people or dogs, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats. For more information, please contact APA! or read more by our Partner, Best Friends Animal Society: http://bestfriends.org/Resources/FAQs-About-Feline-Leukemia-Virus-FeLV/

Cats can live 2-4 years beyond when they are first diagnosed with FeLV - or even longer - so we'd love nothing more than for Helena to spend that with her own family. If you have a home that sounds like the perfect place for her, and especially if you have a high perch with her name on it - contact us to meet this bundle of tabby cuteness today!

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
