Sweet, timid, mellow

If you're looking for an independent, low-maintenance, grown-up kitty, you've come to the right six-year old black and white beauty with the greenest of green eyes. She also has a cute little black goatee and what appears to be half a mustache, which is kind of embarrassing for her because she's, you know...a lady cat. Her name is Tinkerbell.

Before she arrived at her current foster's home, she spent some time in a shelter where she became quite stressed and wouldn't eat, which very likely accounts for her considerable shyness, especially around new people and strange noises. (And, we assume, new people who make strange noises.) But you'll find that once she warms up to you, her mellow sweetness comes shining through. After that, she enjoys being close to her humans, snuggling up next to them so they can pet her more easily.

While Tinkerbell likes to play with mouse toys and chase wand toys occasionally, her preferred form of exercise is walking around the house looking for new spots to lie down, preferably near a window so she can watch the birds flitting around outside. Or just flopping onto her back with her legs up in the air as if to say, "Hey, look what I can do! Cute, huh?"

There are no other pets in Tinkerbell's current home, but there are reports from an earlier foster of her doing well with friendly cats and even dogs, as long as they don't try to nick her food.

All in all, a quiet, stable, laid back home-probably without small children-would suit Tinkerbell to a tee. Know of any place like that?

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.
