Stunning, silly, statuesque

Lark is a beautifully-dressed tuxedo cat with big, expressive eyes. She's shy, so she uses her eyes to convey her opinions and hopes you can understand!

Lark loves string toys, but she'd appreciate your help gently detangling her when her claws get stuck. She'll also enjoy tossing a ball around, but she prefers to make that a solo activity.

This formerly feral kitty is learning how good life can be when she's warm, safe, and secure, but she likes to go the extra mile by building herself a comfy nest. She initially built herself a nest out of toilet paper, then upgraded to a box lined with t-shirts.

Lark has been around another cat and a dog in her foster home, but she didn't pay any attention to them. She's really focused on increasing her confidence and getting used to being around humans. Lark feels safest in her nest, but will seek out human support when she's spooked by a thunderstorm!

Lark is looking for a patient home where she can take her time getting to know you and her environment. She'd love to start in a cozy lair in a quiet, adult-only home where she won't get overstimulated. Lark has the potential to blossom into the cat she wants to be deep down inside, but she needs your help!

Can you be a refuge from the storm for Lark and show her how safe and loving a forever home can be? Contact us today to meet her.

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.
