Sweet, Resilient, Precious

Calligator - or Callie, for short - has a sweet and quiet spirit! She is ready to find her forever home and start a new life with you.

Access to windows is a major bonus for Callie. She prefers watching birds to playing with toys - they are so much more interesting to her! She is independent, but won't refuse the occasional pets and affection from her humans - and will purr her delight. She is not the fondest of being picked up, but is up for a chat if you need a kind and non-judgey ear to listen!

Callie pretty much ignores other cats, and would not object to being your one-and-only kitty. She gets along best with adult humans, but could do well with older, cat-experienced children.

Callie has bounced back from a couple of health issues, and has a funny little stance as she recovers from a lingering weakness in her back legs - but she can jump up on furniture, and gets around just fine & dandy.

Callie's ideal home would be routine, stable, and quiet, because loud noises and unscripted chaos are not her jam. If you are the people she is looking for to establish a loving and respectful companionship, contact us sooner rather than later to meet Calligator!

Callie has diabetes and requires some extra medical care, which may include regulated diet and insulin. Giving Callie her insulin shots is a breeze if you give them to her while she's eating - she's too busy chowing down to notice or care! For more information, please contact APA!

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.
