From her fiery orange patches to her private, and kind, character, little Hestia is appropriately named after the goddess of hearth and home. Although very cautious, she loves attention from humans, and even enjoys being carried around in one arm while the other arm takes care of chores. Hestia is laid back and doesn't typically seek out toys or playtime with other cats, but if you toss a toy mouse, she'll happily bat it around. She's fairly quiet, speaking up in chirps only to warn other cats to give her space. Hestia would do fine in a house with another laid back cat with Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV+) and older, respectful children. Ideally, her forever home would be calm, contain some good cubbies for hiding in when she wants some space, and patient humans who are ready to give love when she wants attention.
Hestia is FeLV+ (Feline Leukemia Virus), which causes a weakened immune system and requires special care. APA! provides some medical assistance after adoption. Cats with FeLV typically have a shortened lifespan. Hestia is not contagious to people or dogs, 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.
