Shy, sweet, playful

In the cat adoption world, adjectives like "shy" and "cuddly" usually end up in different bios, but seldom in the same sentence. Not so with Callie, our sleek, gray two-year-old tabby with the subtle specs of orange peeking out here and there. Just when you think she's too shy and timid for a good cuddle, she throws caution to the wind and decides she enjoys it.

The same split personality applies to her toy play. She's a big fan of those elusive string toys, but pretty much a fraidy cat when it comes to the squeaky kind. As for human playtime, she'll start off all calm and mellow, then startle you with sudden bursts of playfulness.

Callie loves the company of other cats, especially her co-foster for the last two years, Connie. They flock together and it's the cutest thing. They do most things together. Individually, Callie is an explorer. She loves to move around and is curious to see things. She also loves playing with her toys. She is very independent.

Anyone want to hide behind the toilet just for fun? Sign us up! Callie likes to hide in the felvie sanctuary so that she can watch from afar. You could be the lucky person to take her home and watch this beautiful girl blossom! Have some treats? She'll be your best friend!

A quiet, patient home would be ideal for Callie, who hopes you'll also consider adopting her with best pal Connie. If you have other cats to throw into the mix as well, you'd get no argument. Dogs? Unknown.

Something to keep in mind is that both Callie and Connie have tested positive for FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus). FeLV cats have a virus that causes a weaker immune system - they do not have cancer! For the most part, felvies are just like any other cat. You could not pick one out of the crowd, and they generally do not require much additional care. As a bonus, we waive their adoption fees! APA! provides full coverage and treatment for any FeLV-related issues that arise after the time of adoption. Cats with FeLV typically have a shortened lifespan - we like to compare it to the lifespan of adopting a senior kitty, with the added benefit that they don't have chronic senior health problems, and that FeLV related medical care is covered. They are not contagious to people, dogs or other animals, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats.

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.
