Docile, Patient, Sweet

AJ may look a little less coiffed than your typical kitty. But, that's just because she's been living on the streets, doing her best to survive. No girl can look her best under such challenging conditions. But, her rumpled exterior cannot hide the beautiful sweetheart inside. She was such a cooperative girl during medical exams, not objecting to being pushed and prodded by strangers. She seems to know that people are trying to help her. And, it's a good thing that they are. As it turns out, her eyelids are turned inward causing her lashes to scratch against her cornea. This condition, known as entropion, can be resolved through surgery and AJ is scheduled to have the procedure done soon. We know she'll feel so much better once her eyes are no longer hurting. Given her even keeled temperament now, we can only imagine what a love she'll be when she's feeling her best!

AJ is ready to put her past behind her and live the rest of her life in a comfy, loving home. Could it be with you? If you're interested in meeting this precious diamond in the rough, contact us for an introduction to AJ 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.
