Pretty, Shy, Playful

The name Theodora derives from the Greek word meaning gift. It makes sense, because we know this petite beauty, with soulful, big eyes, is going to be a precious gift to a very special person. And, the love and forever home she receives in return will absolutely be the greatest gift of her life.

Theodora finds it difficult to relax in a shelter environment. This calico pixie will politely allow head pets. But, we can tell she's unsure and afraid. She sleeps most of the day and we haven't heard a peep out of her. And, we can tell that currently she's more comfortable keeping company with cats than she is with humans. But, we know from experience the shyest of kitties can become the most loving of all once they're in an environment that suits their temperament and get large doses of the gentle love they need.

Of course, there's more to Theodora than simply being a skittish kitty. Give her the quiet of the night and some toys and she goes to town! There are no human witnesses, but her little toy mice and crinkly balls all change positions overnight. We love to envision her playful side happily going full force with all her kitty friends at the shelter rooting her on!

The ideal home for Theodora would be calm and quiet, with a patient, cat-savvy person who understands she needs time and space to learn to trust since she has been exposed to very few kind, caring people in her life. A household with no dogs or small children would be best. Older, respectful kids and a cat or two to pal around with would be just fine.

If you're ready to give the priceless gift of your love to Theodora, she is sure to have some beautiful gifts in store for you too. Contact us to meet her today!

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.
