Gold Rush may play hard to get when she first meets you - but once she knows you, she will wind around your legs, flop at your feet, and accept all the cheek scratches you have to give! And she has been known to give happy kisses in return. Her well-known secret is that she loves her people!

She plays hard to get with toys, too! First, she pretends like she doesn't *want* to play and ignores the wand toy. Then, in a flash, she will be battling with it! And jumping at it. And play time is ON! She is happy to play by herself and chase after toy balls, too.

Gold Rush likes to keep you on your toes!

She is great with other cats, and snuggling with one of her cat friends is one of her favorite ways to spend time! While she hasn't been around kids or dogs, given her sweet and playful personality, she could probably learn to live with a gentle kid and/or a friendly dog.

Gold Rush came to APA! with an injury to her spine that caused her to be incontinent. As a result, she requires some extra medical care, which may include meds, a regulated diet, and/or manual expression. Incontinent cats are frequently overlooked because potential adopters may assume the worst - that the cat's incontinence is out-of-control. But not all incontinent cats require the same amount or type of care, and some simply require a routine with little special care! And in every other way, Gold Rush is "normal" - fun, loving, and a great companion!

Gold Rush is one of our longest-stay kitties at APA! and we know the perfect human, family, and home for her is out there. Contact APA! for information on how to care for Gold Rush.

Gold Rush is a beautiful calico! This sweet little girl is a gem and deserves her forever home. 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.
