Loving, Playful, Snuggler

Looking for an adorable cuddlebug? Just say the magic word...Shazam! Or, in this case, the magic name...Shaza! When you do, this sweetheart knows you're paging her and she's ready to snuggle...her passion and specialty!

Shaza is an affectionate kitty and loves when you pet her soft coat. She is hesitant around people she's never met. But, she just needs time to get comfortable. Once she does, she's a loving kitty who will adore you during the day and curl up with you at night to rest easy by your side. She won't hesitate to let you know with a "love me" meow when she wants attention. And, chances are you'll be glad to give it to her. (See irresistible cuteness in above photos!) Shaza doesn't like being picked up off the ground. But, on occasion she will allow you to pick her up off of the bed. It feels less scary that way.

Despite her tabby cat appearance, you may just mistake Shaza for a dog. She absolutely LOVES to play fetch! Toss out some fluffy pom pom balls and she'll track them down and enthusiastically bring them back to you. Occasionally she'll drop them in her water bowl to give them extra weight...a pro tip done by only the most elite fetchers. In addition to balls, Shasta also enjoys playing with other fun toys. She sometimes thinks your hand is one of them and is still learning not to use her claws on this sensitive plaything. To avoid any inadvertent scratching to a small human, a home without young kiddos would be best.

Shaza lived with two small dogs and was not in the least fazed by them. She was adored by her former foster. But, the living arrangements were problematic because the resident German Shepherd felt cats were meant to be chased.

Shaza has not been around a lot of people. Her ideal household would be a quiet one where she feels safe and not overwhelmed by loud noises and too many humans. She is such a doll who will be a cherished addition to her forever home. Could it be yours? If you're thinking "Holy mackerel, yes!!" contact us for an introduction to Shaza today!

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.
