Calm, friendly, curious

Mittens is a calm low-key kitty. She's friendly, yet independent, so she won't be all up in your face or pestering you all day long for attention. She's also very quiet and will talk only if you do something she doesn't like, such as brushing or holding her.

Mittens will take a few swipes at her fishing pole toy but isn't really that interested in playing. She'd rather lounge around and nap. It would be good if her new family would encourage her to play more. She is a bit chubby and could lose some weight (slowly and safely), and exercise will help her do that.

Mittens had some brief exposure to another foster cat. She was a little hissy, yet curious. It's possible that with a longer proper introduction she would decide that she's OK with other cats.

If you're looking for a calm, easy-going kitty companion, contact us today to arrange a meet-and-greet!

Before her stay with APA!, Mittens had been declawed. As a result of this she must remain an indoor cat.

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.
