Shy, Senior, Beauty

Margarita has such a gorgeous coat and the black markings on her nose are in the shape of a heart! This sweet senior needs a cat-savvy person who is interested in helping her relax and come out of her shell. Time and love should absolutely do the trick!

Margarita has given us every indication that she's willing to cultivate a relationship with a kind person who takes it slow and easy with her. In just a few days she went from hissing at a human who approached her to letting that same person pet her head without making a sound. Recently she even leaned into our hand and happily accepted some cheek scratches. We think she's still getting used to the idea that humans don't always come with medicine! A quiet home where she's no longer afraid would allow her to transform into the loving kitty that we know she can be.

All of Margarita's teeth were removed prior to her arrival at the shelter. No big deal, Margarita is fine with eating on wet food.

If you're just the person to give Margarita the time, comfort and care she needs to remove the fear and fill those pretty blue eyes with love, contact us to meet Margarita 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.
