Velcro kitty, Affectionate, Playful

Big Mama is the epitome of feline charm with her minimalist tuxedo look that adds a touch of elegance to her playful spirit. At around 1ish years old, this sweet Domestic Short Hair is ready to retire from her mama duties and find a loving forever home. Once you get to know her, you'll discover a friendly and affectionate companion who, despite initial shyness, blossoms into a sweet lap sitter and loyal companion.

Change might be challenging for Big Mama, but once she feels safe, she becomes an escort, following you everywhere she can. She loves head scratches, gentle strokes, and isn't shy about expressing her happiness. With a high affection level, she enjoys being close to people, walking by your feet, and inspecting your activities, even offering assistance when it's time to brush your teeth!

This mama has a playful side, chasing and batting at balls, enjoying wand toys, and occasionally participating in midnight zoomies. While her experience with other cats, dogs, and kids is unknown, she has the potential to adapt well in a loving and patient home.

While she may be energectic, Big Mama does not like to yell. Her quiet voice includes a delightful chirr used to communicate with people and her kittens. The shelter made her so nervous she went on a hunger strike! But now being in a home, she regularly enjoys her Royal Canine Kitten thin slices in gravy.

If you're looking for a sweet, affectionate, and energetic companion, Big Mama might be the perfect match for you. Consider giving this retiring mama cat the loving home she deserves, and you'll be rewarded with the sweetest and most loving friend!


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.
