Aptly named, Bashful Betty won't be the one to make the first move. However, that doesn't mean she isn't interested. Like the adage goes, good things come to those who wait. And beautiful Bashful Betty is a really, really, really good thing!

As you can probably guess, the key feature of Bashful Betty's ideal home is patience. She's looking for a safe place to land where she can experience things at her own measured pace. This precious kitty is cautious, but not gruff. She wants to get to know you. It just takes her a little bit of time to warm up. But this is a good thing, because you also get to slowly watch her purr-sonality blossom.

Bashful Betty is very good at making her boundaries known. So - although she doesn't have any documented interactions with cats, children, or dogs - you can probably figure out her comfort level with any (or all) through careful introductions.

There are some areas where her name isn't quite a perfect fit. This is one talkative girl. And a lot of her talking is about another of her unabashed loves: food! Specifically, how often and how much she desires it. Bashful Betty also likes playing with her wand toy. She really enjoys when you dangle it near her and she can vigorously swat at her prize.

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.
