Meet Dot, an extremely friendly girl that wants to be your furever feline companion!

Dot charms everyone she meets with her warm nature. She loves meeting new people, and wastes no time turning those strangers into friends. Every interaction she has with a human is a chance for Dot to spread her special brand of joy. She fully commits to enchanting those around her with an enthusiasm that is infectiously delightful.

Dot has lived with multiple cats of various ages. She is partial to kitten energy, but peacefully coexists with adult cats as well. She has had great interactions with children, befriending tiny babies to teenagers.

This sweet gal is kind of
playful, but HIGHLY affectionate. She will follow you around the house because she always wants to be near her people. She likes to curl up on your lap, chill on your desk, and stretch out on the back of the couch. Dot is not that vocal, but she'll meow to let you know she's looking for you. Dot's ideal home is with someone who wants to spend a lot of time with her and doesn't mind her need for attention.

Dot has abnormal sinuses which cause her to be prone to respiratory infections. These are easily managed and APA! will provide you with all the information you need to handle Dot's URIs. Her funky sinuses also causes Dot's normal breathing to sound like a delicate snore - a unique sound her foster has fondly dubbed a "snorgle."

Ready to open your home to this lovely lovable kitty? Contact us about Dot today!

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.
