Bold, Playful, Confident

Dana is a peppy gal who will keep you on your toes! And any wand toy will get her on HER toes - Da Bird and Da Mouse are her two favorites. She likes to stay active and will always be a willing playmate.

She is mischievous, too, and will steal your warm chair as soon as you get up! Which she sees as another opportunity for her to play - because when you move her from her stolen spot she will playfully bite and swat at your hands...all in high-spirited fun. Just bring out a wand toy and she is instantly mesmerized!

Dana wants to lay on you (or your warm chair!), but doesn't want you to pet her when she does; she prefers to quietly sit with you. She will cuddle when she feels like it, and then it may turn into a wrestling match. She's fine with other cats once she gets to know them - but they need to know that Dana is the boss of them! She likes to be the alpha kitty in the house.

Yep, Dana is a little diva! And was dealt a bit of a crummy hand as a baby; early on, she was diagnosed with digestive issues that caused decreased movement of food from the throat to the stomach (megaesophagus). But being the spunky gal that she is, she persevered! Her humans should be older and cat-experienced (she's not the companion for little kids), and comfortable giving her meds and making sure she eats properly. She is stable, but will vomit every so often, and as a result needs to have her dental situation monitored.

She is a petite firecracker, with a personality twice her size! Contact us today to arrange a meet & greet with darling Dana.

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.
