Quiet, Sleek, Observant

Tarot is a sleek all-black cat with dazzling eyes. She has not quite warmed up to the world of humans and dogs but she just needs some time and space. She is skittish about human interaction but with loving patience and gentle interaction, Tarot can learn to be trusting.

One of her favorite activities is sunning at the window. When she's not observing the world go by from her window, you might find her engaging in exuberant play with her foster kitty roommates. She's not quite ready to play with human friends but she's definitely got the playful spirit in her. Tarot is on the shy side when it comes to people and she doesn't "talk"; she is a quiet girl. She just needs a home where she will feel safe.

Her reaction to dogs is one of avoidance, but she doesn't get aggressive when she sees a dog, she just runs the other way. She might learn to live with a dog on her own time. She hasn't been observed around children but given her cautious nature, she would be better off in a quiet home with adults or older children, who can appreciate her need for space.

Tarot is looking for a home where she can realize her full kitty potential. She can become a loving companion to the right person who opens their heart to her. Perhaps Tarot is in your future.

Tarot has tested positive for Feline Leukemia. FeLV is not a type of cancer. It's a virus that causes a weaker immune system and often a shorter life-span. For the most part, 'FeLVies' are just like any other cat. APA! waives the adoption fees of these cats, and provides FeLV-related treatment and support post-adoption. Tarot can only live with other FeLV+ cats, but dogs and other animals are just fine! Any questions? We'd love to talk with you about FeLV care

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.
