Sassy! Smart! Tomboy!

Alma is full of spirit and soul! She is curious about everything and loves to play, especially with anything with feathers, and anything she can chase. Does it roll? She'll chase it! Can you wave it in the air and move it around? She'll chase it and leap for it! Can she bat it around and make it move? She'll chase it!

And it's super fun when a fly gets in the house! She will make soft little mews as she stalks and chases it.

Alma and her siblings were found living under some buildings, so they were rescued and have spent the last few months getting socialized and used to people; they have made excellent progress, are well-mannered, and will use approved scratching devices if you provide them! Alma and her sister, Arp (105566), were the last two to be rescued, so they need more time to get used to people. Alma is careful around humans at this point, but will play with you, accept pets, and will hang out in the room with you - she likes to watch what you are doing and doesn't want to be alone, but also isn't quite ready to be picked up and cuddled just yet. But we are confident that with time, kindness, and patience, she will learn to love that, too. In the meantime, she promises to keep you entertained with her antics!

When Alma takes a break from playing, she will get comfy and take a long cat nap, sometimes snuggled up with one of her siblings but many times napping some place private on her own!

Alma loves the resident adult cat in her foster home and kind of thinks of him as her Papa Cat, and plays and cuddles with him all the time. Alma would love to be adopted with one of her siblings - ask us about her siblings! She isn't the kind of kitty who likes to be alone all the time, so she would be best with a sibling, a kitten friend, and/or a nice older cat in her new home. That will help her feel safe and comfortable!

Alma would do well in a home with adults/older kids, and another kitty to be her buddy. She is calm and independent, and just learning how wonderful people can be. She's a beautiful little brown-and-tan tabby with the most perfect stripes and speckles; she's perfect all over! Contact us today to arrange a meet & 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.
