Friendly, Chatty, Independent

Mary Lou Catton's almost constant bleps are as adorable as they sound, and potentially could not even be the cutest thing about her! She also makes a little 'brrb' sound when she comes up to her humans for pets or wants to say hello in lieu of a meow, and it absolutely matches her sweet and soft personality!

Mary Lou Catton gives off an air of independence, and seems to enjoy taking some alone time throughout the day. When in reality, she can't resist cuddling into her humans when the opportunity arises! If she is in the room and you casually reach your hand out, Mary Lou Catton stealthily approaches and then unapologetically leans in eagerly for pets. She'll plop on the ground awaiting belly rubs while making her 'brrb' sounds and air biscuits in thank you!

This perceived aura of independence also extends to furry friends. Mary Lou Catton never seems to make up her mind about whether she wants a feline friend or not, but has been seen laying near and grooming the other cat in her foster home when she thinks no one is looking. Likely she would do great with another laid back cat who isn't too rambunctious or overeager!

Mary Lou Catton has no teeth, which is why her little tongue is always in a blep! Due to this, she is on an all wet food diet, but otherwise doesn't require any special care. It does make her little nibbles that much sweeter since there's no 'danger' of a real bite! Mary Lou Catton can err towards being overstimulated. She would do well with a human who is willing and able to read her changes in behavior. She will give little warning nibbles if her signs are not being read, but as long as her needs are respected and space is given, Mary Lou Catton will revert to her default reserved self!

Every so often Mary Lou Catton gets a burst of energy! A feline friend to chase, or toy to pick up and bat around is all she needs to use up that energy and get right back to her happy lounging moments.

If your home is looking for a quirky, friendly, toothless sweetheart, Mary Lou Catton is the cat for you! This silly calico has so much personality, and would be an entertaining and loving addition to the ideal home for her. Contact APA! today to see if you are each other's purr-fect match!

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.
