Felix the Cat will make your heart go pitter-pat! But, she wants you to know right off the bat, that she is a girl, unlike her cartoon namesake. She's been through some tough times. She was left in a closed box at a shelter and then was somehow lost after being adopted, found and then surrendered to the shelter when her human was ill and could not care for her. She could write a book about her challenging life. But, she would rather find a loving, forever home instead!

Felix is shy initially and needs patience and time to adjust to unfamiliar people. As she gets to know you she will increasingly come out of her shell. There was a time when she was affectionate and loved to be held. She is understandably timid now after all she's been through. But, we know deep down this sweet girl is loving and wants to be loved.

Felix has been great with all the cats she has met since coming to APA!, as well as a large, energetic dog and a mellow, senior dog. She thinks that fluffy, canine tails make the best toy - the only thing missing are batteries to keep them wagging constantly! Felix also loves feather toys and catnip, which she comforts herself with after yet another fruitless - though energetic! - play session with the laser dot toy, which she can't seem to catch...yet!

Felix had an unpredictable start to life and there have been a few bumps along the way. But, with a kind, patient human the road ahead looks welcoming and bright. Ready to help Felix show her sunshiny side once again? It is sure to warm your heart! Contact us today to meet her!

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.
