Catniss loves to be around her humans and isn't shy when asking for affection! From day one in her foster home, she was immediately asking her foster parents for pets by rubbing up against their hands and legs! Now, she also likes to snuggle up to her humans during nap time - her favorite pastime.

Catniss isn't much of a player. She prefers to nap the day away in the sunshine. If she sees you heading to bed for a nap, she'll be sure to follow you to get some cuddles! If you'd like to entice her into playing, though, she can occasionally be tempted with a feather toy or a dangling string.

Once she's comfortable with you, Catniss will start meowing just to chat with you throughout the day! She'll also meow at you to remind you that it's mealtime and she's hungry.

Catniss is a generally low maintenance type of kitty. However, she does get picky with the way that her food is prepared. Catniss has also only eaten wet food, so you'll need some patience if you want to transition her to a different diet.

Other than her picky eating, Catniss is pretty adaptable and would fit into just about any home. She is very comfortable with humans and loves to be around them.

If you'd like to meet this sweetheart, contact us soon!

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.
