Affectionate, Loving, Social

It might be hard to find a cat sweeter, more social, and more human-loving than Meowlena! She is welcoming and outgoing, and has a happy nature. She's always excited to get pets and/or treats! She would love a home with people to sit next to on the sofa while sharing affection and getting lots of pets. She's a social butterfly who will work the room when you have friends over. The more pets and attention, the better!

And as her name suggests, Meowlena is big on meows! How else is she going to get your attention and get those delectable head scratches and pets? This affectionate tabby LOVES being around people. When you enter the room she will stare up at you and give you an imploring "Meow!" And, she doesn't have just any meow. Hers is an incredibly charming, raspy old lady voice that definitely gets your attention!

When Meowlena isn't lobbying for snuggles, she likes to explore or nap in a comfy bed. She'll even sleep on your pillow! She'll occasionally play with toys - it has been reported that wand toys especially get her going! She loves crunchy treats like Temptations and Friskies. But, she's willing to pick out some new ones with you and give them a thorough taste test.

Meowlena would love to be adopted into in a calm home with a loving human who will give her lots of cuddles, pets and love. She would prefer to be your only kitty. She has co-existed with other calm cats, but she has also been known to tell them to "get off my lawn! if they venture into her space or compete with her for a person's attention. She can co-exist with a calm dog as long as they leave her alone.

Contact us for an introduction!

Meowlena has Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), which means her kidneys are not functioning as well as when she was a young cat. Other than the standard monitoring of her health, at this point Meowlena hasn't required any special treatment for CKD. However, this condition is so common in older cats that APA! offers a special adoption package for them. Read more about it here: https://bit.ly/2YudG90

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.
