When Stella first came to us, we thought she was feral, but she surprised us! She just needs to get to know someone on her own timeline. Once she's comfortable, she's a real sweetie. She may have been someone's pet at some point.

Stella is a great mix of active and chill. Sometimes she zips around her enclosure, leaping from ledge to ledge like Wonder Woman. After she has worked off her energy, she enjoys napping, people-watching, and even asking for affection. She's still getting the hang of how to do that. She will meow awkwardly and then slam her head against your hand. In her own cute and dorky way, she's trying hard to say she wants to be friends!

Stella has had some kitty roommates, and she's been anywhere from neutral to friendly with them. It takes her a while to warm up to a new kitty, but within a few weeks, she was almost cuddling with another cat. If another cat starts a spat Stella will defend herself, but she never instigates it.

In the right home, we think Stella would fully blossom into the sweet, fun, and loving cat she was meant to be. She just needs a patient adult or two who will give her all the time she needs to feel comfortable with them. She's not above being lured with treats, so she'll warm up even faster if she learns that treats lead to pets and fun playtime.

If you'd like to experience the joy of helping Stella blossom into all she was meant to be, 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.
