Playful, Sweet, Snuggly

Besides having one of the cutest names in the history of ever, Tinsel is super adorable when she plays with her favorite toy - a stuffed sloth! And she doesn't just play with it, she grooms it, too. She is very sweet with the cutest gray nose, and is an all-around great cat - she loves to play, but she also loves to cuddle.

Tinsel enjoys playing with other cats and an assortment of toys. She isn't in love with the resident dogs in her foster home, but she accepts them and lives peacefully with them. She's vocal when you get home or when it's mealtime, but is otherwise is a calm and quiet gal.

An unknown previous trauma resulted in Tinsel being incontinent. You need to gently press on her bladder 2 times a day to help her go pee, which is easier than you can imagine! Especially with Tinsel, who is easy-peasy. Otherwise, she is no different than any other cat - she plays, she naps in cozy places, and she cuddles with her human. She would do best in a home, or a space in a home, without carpet.

Tinsel is looking for a home with people who want to be greeted when they get home and want to snuggle up with her. We think that she could be great with gentle children who love, understand, and respect her.

Tinsel is the real deal, brimming with grace and shining with good nature, and would love to share her life with you! Contact us today to learn more, and to arrange a meet & greet.

Tinsel is incontinent and requires some extra medical care, which may include a regulated diet and/or manual expression. 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.
