Give Dana a super soft fleece blanket and watch her make all the biscuits! Put the soft blankie on your lap and it brings out her inner snuggly. She 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 for a while and give you a few kisses - and you'll know cuddletime is over when it turns into a wrestling match and her kisses turn into nips!

Dana is also happy wrestling with a cardboard scratcher! She will go to town on it, chew it, and tear it up, just for the fun of it. She will leap for wand toys and is almost always a willing playmate. When she plays, she gives it all she's got!

Dana was recently diagnosed with mild hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), when the heart's muscle tissue becomes thickened without an obvious cause. Many people diagnosed with this condition never have any symptoms and live a normal life. At this point no special care for Dana due to HCM is required. As you can tell, it doesn't keep her from being a zany, playful girl!

She is mischievous, too, and will steal your warm chair as soon as you get up! And 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 the game is ON.

Dana is fine with other cats once she gets to know them - she just needs a getting-to-know-you period. Because she can get nippy, she is not the companion for little kids.

Dana has megaesophagus (an enlarged esophagus that causes decreased movement of food from the throat to the stomach). Her humans should be adult and cat-experienced, and comfortable giving her meds and making sure she eats properly. She will vomit every so often, and as a result needs to have her dental situation monitored.

Dana is a sleek beauty and a petite firecracker - with a personality twice her size! 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.
