Curious, gorgeous, relaxed!

Just you wait until you see this beautiful lady! Gretchen is a stunning tabby with beautiful, round eyes, gorgeous fur, and a lovely personality. She will rub on your legs to let you know she cares. She will also lie on the bed, couch, or wherever you are! She isn't a big cuddler, but is open to pets on her terms. She is easy to get to know, curious and confident. She is sweet and loving and embraces your playful attention.

And speaking of playing...Gretchen loves to play with wand toys and laser pointers! If you have an active household, she may be the perfect cat for you. She's very good at having fun on her own, but tempt her with a toy, and she will go after it tirelessly! She also loves sitting in a window, and could do that all day. She would love some window seats with good views in her new home!

Gretchen is super chill and friendly with other cats, too, and loves to get to know them. She'll hiss if she feels threatened, but otherwise is down to get to know other furry critters! She hasn't met any kids yet, but would probably be fine if they respected her space; Gretchen is an independent woman and likes to do her own thing. She'll meow when she's hungry or if she's picked up and doesn't want to be, but other than that she's a pretty quiet girl!

Gretchen is very relaxed and gets along with everyone she meets, humans and animal, as long as they are nice to her and respect her boundaries. She would love a home with another chill cat or even a cat-friendly dog.

Gretchen would do best with patient people who let her come to them when she wants love, rather than forcing it on her. You'll love her personality - slightly quirky and lots of fun. She's a sweetheart! 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.
