Sweet, Gentle, Petite

If you're looking for a sweet and fuzzy friend, meet Fuzzwig! Fuzziwig is a gorgeous, petite calico girl who is a little shy around new people, but turns into the sweetest girl once she warms up to you. She's becoming more and more affectionate as she gets to know APA! staff and visitors, and she now loves being petted. When you're petting her, Fuzziwig will lean into your hand for more, purring loudly the entire time.

In the cattery, Fuzziwig coexists peacefully with other cats in a group room. She's a social eater, so she prefers to eat when someone is nearby. Lots of petting and affection puts her in a good mood too, so she often likes to go eat once she's received some love from her people.

Fuzziwig's perfect forever home would be one with loving people who are patient with her as she warms up to them. When she's not hanging out with you, eating up all the attention you'll give her, Fuzziwig would enjoy having some comfy cat beds to curl up in and nap. In such a short time, Fuzziwig has already blossomed into such a sweetheart, so she's sure to continue becoming even sweeter in a loving home! She would be thrilled to be your new best friend!

Fuzziwig has stomatitis which is an inflammation of the mouth. It is typically resolved through removal of teeth and supportive care, so she is currently scheduled for extractions to make her feel better! She currently requires some extra medical care which may include medications and a wet food diet. For more information, please contact APA!

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.

For further information or to meet Fuzziwig, please email [email protected].
