Affectionate, adorable, curious

We would now like to introduce you to the beauty and magnificence that is...Tara! (The cat. Not Scarlett O'Hara's digs in "Gone with the Wind.")

And magnificent she is, her jet black coat accented with white markings on face, chest, paws and tippy-tip of tail. In fact, it might take a while to get past Tara's looks-she's that beautiful.

Not long after arriving at her foster's home, Tara gave birth to two kittens. Then, not having quite enough to keep her busy, she happily welcomed four orphan kittens to her brood as well. Understandably, she was a bit less welcoming to her foster's other, older cat. The diminutive family dog, on the other hand, became her pal.

Like most cats, Tara sleeps a lot. But she also loves to play, frolicking with her kittens and chasing those little red laser dots. With household humans she's a friendly attention seeker, marching right up so they can pet her. Want to cuddle up with her? Feel free. With one little...um...caveat. Tara's what we affectionately call a love biter-one who occasionally doesn't know her own strength. So a house with no kids would be best.

Actually, as far as Tara is concerned, a house with no doors would be even better. Because as much fun as she has inside, she spends a lot of time just dying to be outside. (She's already tried to blow the joint a couple of times.)

Tara's foster feels strongly that, with both sweet and straight-forward attributes to support her, Tara is an excellent candidate to be an indoor/outdoor cat. (And would probably be miserable if she weren't.) So although our usual APA! counsel is that cats are safer and better off indoors, there are certainly exceptions. And we think Tara is one of them.

So if you're a potential adopter with an inside, an outside, and a loving side to offer, we just might have the cat for you.

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.
