Miss Ella has come to us from a very stressful hoarding situation. At the shelter, she felt safest under the kitty tower, and that's a-ok! It was surprising to see her smoosh all her floof under there, though. We sat next to her on the floor, assuring her that she's going to be just fine. Ella seems to be relaxing into the idea (and into scritches on her cheeks!)

Ella is an a foster home now but would absolutely LOVE a peaceful forever home to return back to the happy kitty we all know she is.

We can also walk you through the process on how to help Ella come out of her shell. Soon enough this gorgeous girl will be strutting around like she should be!

Ella has tested positive for Feline Leukemia Virus. FeLV causes a weaker immune system and often a shorter life-span; but for the most part, 'FeLVies' are just like any other cat. APA! waives their adoption fees, and provides treatment and support post-adoption. Ella 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.
