Jill is a lover and snuggler! She may be a little timid at first, but once she's accepted you as her human (or one of her humans), there is no such thing as too many pets. Sitting down? Expect lap snuggles. Standing up? Here comes Jill with leg rubs. And if you're petting her on the couch, her cat tree, or the floor, she becomes a wiggly ball of cat obsessed with getting the most possible pets out of the situation before she settles in! Jill's a biscuit-making machine despite being front-paw declawed.

She's an older lady with many opinions, including the strong belief that she should always be allowed in the room you're in. She's a lithe black panther with a deep meow that doesn't match her small body, and she enjoys regular conversations with you.

Quite playful for an older lady, Jill likes chasing laser pointers, watching birds, and playing with her wand toys. She'd totally play with her brother, Jack, but he's more interested in being lazy and watching her play most of the time. They do enjoy exploring together though!

Jill is on thyroid medication, but happily eats it in tuna or wet food. She's as sweet and gentle as can be, and just wants to share her love with someone!

Before her stay with APA!, Jill had been declawed. As a result of this she must remain an indoor cat.

Jill 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. Jill 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.
