We don't know what in her history made Chickenfoot afraid of people; she hasn't been at APA! long, and will observe us humans from a safe location. Though now she is more likely to observe from a distance behind something, rather than under something. That may sound like baby steps, but it's definitely progress! More recently she's felt safe enough to snuggle out in the open, though she still only will accept occasional pets for a second or two. But progress is progress! She's learning humans can be trusted. We're grateful that she now lounges out in the open, she's so beautiful, it's a treat just to look at her!

Chickenfoot is beautiful, with bewitching eyes. She doesn't seem to mind other cats, and in fact seems laid-back around them. We haven't seen her play, but since she is a private gal, she might be playing when we aren't around!

The ideal home for Chickenfoot would be a calm house where she can take her time getting to know her family and her surroundings. We think she would love to be your sentry kitty, if only she could find the perfect location!

Contact us today if you think Chickenfoot could fit perfectly into your life!

Chickenfoot has tested positive for FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus). FeLV cats have a virus that causes a weaker immune system - they do not have cancer! For the most part, felvies are just like any other cat. You could not pick one out of the crowd, and they generally do not require much additional care. As a bonus, we waive their adoption fees! APA! provides full coverage and treatment for any FeLV-related issues that arise after the time of adoption. Cats with FeLV typically have a shortened lifespan - we like to compare it to the lifespan of adopting a senior kitty, with the added benefit that they don't have chronic senior health problems, and that FeLV-related medical care is covered. Chickenfoot is not contagious to people, dogs or other animals, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats. For more information, plea

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.
