Introvert, Careful, Confident

If sweet and sassy is your type, then Coco is your girl. This little lady has really been through a lot in her life, and she's ready to settle down and relax with a family of her own, once and for all.

Coco is uncomfortable and cautious in new situations, and requires some time and patience to warm up. She tolerated the other cats in her previous foster home, but since taking up residence at the APA! shelter, she has decided she doesn't like any of her feline roommates. As long as they leave her alone she is fine, but she won't let them share her sunny window, the cat tree, or any space where she currently is!

It took Coco a while to trust people in her foster home, but then she turned into an affectionate cuddle machine! Her foster mom used to sit quietly with her and read to her, and Coco seemed to really dig that. You might need to find your own way to help Coco relax and trust you, and once you do she probably will curl up in your lap, pet herself on your hands, and even lick your toes to show you her affection; she has done that in her past. You just need to be patient while traveling the road to get there!

Coco is perfectly content on her own during the workday, but once you get home she will politely ask for her cuddles with a meow, and she's not afraid to rub her head on your hand if you have not met her petting quota.

Coco is a fully-grown adult cat, but she loves to play and will bunny-kick toys and even chase after and fetch catnip toys! And toys with feathers are her favorite. Otherwise, she is happy to lounge in a sunbeam. One of the cutest things Coco will do (eventually) is roll over and show you her tummy - you won't be able to resist snuggling her.

Coco's ideal home would be low-key and quiet, with cat-savvy adults/young adults to give her the pets she wants and the time she needs to get used to everything and everyone. It's really important that Coco goes to a family that will be patient with her. You'll find that she's so worth it!

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.

APA!’s Barn Cat Program Provides You With Your Favorite Whiskered Workers

Some cats prefer mice-hunting to bird-watching, and some prefer laying in grass to sitting on laps. Here at APA!, we believe that barn cats still deserve a chance to live happy and healthy.
