Dana is a little diva who was dealt a bit of a crummy hand! 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! She 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.

Dana is mischievous, too, and will steal your chair as soon as you get up. She gets a kick out of you moving her from her stolen spot because it's an excuse to playfully bite and swat at your hands...all in good fun, Dana style!

Dana wants to lay on you, 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 will use her claws and teeth, and while she doesn't break the skin, her human companions should be older and cat-experienced; she's not the companion for little kids. She's fine with other cats once she gets to know them, but will swat at them if she is hungry and they get between her and her food.

Dana's humans should be 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.

When Dana came to the APA! nursery, she fit in the palm of your hand. She is still small - though much bigger than the palm of your hand, of course - with a personality that is twice her size! If this little firecracker intrigues you, contact us today to arrange a meet & greet,

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.
