Playful, beautiful, resilient

It seems as if Darcy had a rough life before coming to Austin. She came in as a feral cat. She was a little shy when she first arrived but is coming out of her shell more and more every day. She is becoming more trusting and finally letting down her guard a little and is starting to show she wants some love. She allows gentle pets, but doesn't like sudden movements or loud noises right now.

Darcy does like to play and her favorite is string toys! After a burst of playtime, it's cute to see her stretch out and take a cat nap. She looks like the queen of the enclosure!!

As for her ideal FURever home, Darcy is respectful of her roommate's space but seems a little too energetic for the quieter and older cats. She is a tad territorial, but might be okay with other cats with slow introductions. We don't know how she feels about dogs but she was a little shy when she first arrived, so it might take a little time to adjust to a home with a canine pal. She might do well with cat-experienced dogs or a very slow introduction.

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.
