Clever, Calm, Loving

Shion is 13 years young and beautiful as ever! She is a bit shy at first, but if you're willing to go slow with her, she'll warm up, adore you and be your new best friend for life!

When Shion's beloved human passed away, she went from a cozy life in a loving home to a confusing, unfamiliar world full of changes and strangers. She is initially fearful and cautious in new environments, who can blame her? But give this girl some time and she will open up and show you what a very personable kitty she is!

Shion has really blossomed after a short time in her foster home. She loves being pet and will even beg for pets! Between petting sessions, she will chill out nearby or next to you.

Shion doesn't play much these days, preferring to relax and hangout with you. She will go exploring on occasion and knows how to open doors - such a smart girl! She likes to tranquilly gaze out the window, looking very meditative and pretty, and when it's nap time, she enjoys going to sleep in dark corners. With her gorgeous black coat, sometimes you won't even realize she's there!

Shion is an ace at using the litterbox and she scratches in appropriate places. She can live with other cats or dogs, but she prefers them to be mellow like her!

Shion's ideal household would be quiet and low-energy with one or two adults who are chill. She is just an all-around great kitty who would love to spend her golden years being your favorite girl. If you are just the kind soul to gently help Shion reclaim the tranquil, happy existence she once knew, get ready for love and contact us for an introduction to this sweet lady!

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.

Say "Yes" for Sapphire this Giving Tuesday

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
