Pie is as sweet as pie! She is a petite little lady with scarring on her corneas, so her eyes look cloudy - and she is almost blind. So when you want to give her the cheek scratches that she loves so much, make sure you let her know where you are, otherwise you will inadvertently sneak up on her and startle her! For example, you could make a "psp psp psp" sound and rub your fingers together near her ears before you touch her, alerting her to your presence - and that loving pets are incoming!

Once you let Pie know you are there to give love, she will respond with her sweet little high-pitched meow to tell you that she is ready to receive your rubs of love! She may even grab your hand with her paw if she thinks you are going to STOP petting her. She won't jump on the couch or your bed to cuddle with you, but if you sit on the floor with her, she has nothing but love to give!

Pie likes to talk! She will chat away, looking right at you as if to say, "I see you and all the love you are going to give me!"

Pie is more interested in snuggling than playing. She will get cozy in any soft and warm spot - like under the bed - burrow in, and snooze for a while, eventually emerging to find a nice sunny window for some sunbathing. There should be many locations in her new home to support her sleeping habit - and actually, it's more of a superpower than a habit!

Pie would do fine with another cat. She is good around other cats but still needs to have her own place to sleep and snuggle into.

Vision-impaired kitties are amazing! They use their hearing and memory to navigate their environment; Pie quickly learned the layout of her foster home. She will delight you with her loving personality and amaze you with her ability. She has a beautiful, soft tuxedo coat and perfect white whiskers. Contact us today to meet this little slice of heaven.

Pie 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. Pie 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.
