Goofy, snuggly, energetic

Fun fact: Gogurt loves cucumbers!

Like any teenager, Gogurt is sometimes silly, sometimes bursting with non-stop energy, and sometimes very sweet and snuggly.

She instantly made friends with her foster's two adult cats, and loves playing run-and-chase with them. She's also an ace when it comes to batting ping pong balls around the house. New sounds may spook her, but she adapts to them quickly.

Gogurt is generally pretty quiet, but she will sing with excitement when you're preparing her food. She's a cuddly girl who like to sleep on or right next to her foster at night. She gets along well with kids as well as with adults.

Gogurt is a special girl with some special needs. She is urinary incontinent due to a congenital malformation. She needs her bladder expressed 3-4 times a day - that means gently pressing on it to help her go - and that's an easy thing to learn! She's also fecal incontinent; we think this may be due to an injury that caused her to lose feeling and muscle control in her anal area. She's on some medications that she will need long-term, but she takes them easily when they're mixed into her wet food.

While Gogurt requires some extra medical care, which may include a regulated diet and/or manual expression, she is easy to care for. And in every other way, she is a typical cat - fun, loving, and a great companion! Contact APA! for information on how to care for Gogurt.

The beauty of animals is that they never feel sorry for themselves. Gogurt doesn't let her medical issues stop her from relishing life and having fun every day. She really is an inspiration!

If you have a soft spot in your heart for sweethearts who just need a little extra care, contact us today to arrange a meet-and-greet!

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.
