Most likely you've heard the expression, "This foster home ain't big enough for the two of us, hombre!"
Or perhaps not. Especially the "hombre" part. But that's sort of the vibe you get when another cat gets the attention that 2-year-old Connie feels is rightfully hers.
Connie definitely prefers to be dominant, but as long as the other cats are cool with it, she is a loving a faithful friend. One of her friends is her bestie Callie, her co-foster for the last two years. They flock together and it's the cutest thing. They do most things together. Connie is a bit bossy. She likes to boss Callie around, her foster feels it is out of her love and care for Callie. She wants to protect her when Callie is exploring the house. The two of them enjoy stuffing themselves into the same kitty bed. Even when we give them one large enough to fit them both, they insist on a smaller one. It usually ends up with Connie sitting on top of Callie which is hilarious!
You'll discover that lying around the house all day is Connie's preferred activity, but she will occasionally shock you out of your reverie with bursts of playfulness. Have some treats? Connie will stand at attention! Want to really win her heart? Bring out the brush and get to working on that pretty coat of hers!
Connie can also be quite vocal when she's not getting her way, is not done being petted ("Where'd you go? Where'd you go?"), or is in urgent need of a lying-on-her-back tummy rub. Food has also been known to excite one of her meow-fests. Connie loves to snuggle and cuddle.
If possible, Connie would love to be adopted along with Callie. They love and need each other to feel safe and happy!
A quiet, patient home would be a swell idea, even one with another cat or two already in residence, but dogs are an unknown quantity at present. Perhaps best to stick to the single species for now.
Something to keep in mind is that both Connie and Callie 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.
