Beautiful, cautious

Mela's coat will remind you of Joseph's Technicolor Dream Coat! She's a beautiful mix of orange, cream, caramel and chocolate, decorated with an assortment of spots, stripes and freckles.

When Mela came to us, she had obvious scars on her hips from a previous injury. She is mostly healed but is still in pain so she's on pain meds. In spite of her discomfort, she's friendly with her foster. She does growl at her foster's other pets. That may be due to her pain, or she may have been injured by another animal and is therefore fearful of them. Her foster does think that Mela will be more relaxed and friendly once she is fully healed and no longer in pain.

This poor girl needs a forever hero, someone who will give her a quiet, calm, loving adult home with no other pets and all the time she needs to fully recover from her trauma. We're betting that she will eventually reward her forever person many times over with her love and gratitude.

If you'd like to be Mela's hero, contact us today for 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.
