Cuddly, Extra Cuddly, Super Cuddly!

Sometimes when Shirley plays she will grab your toes - no doubt thinking, "Humans sure don't have many toes." Because Shirley is a polydactyl and has extra toes on all of her feet! But she doesn't ponder that for long, because she is more interested in snuggling with you. When she wants attention she will touch her nose to yours and then give you a nose kiss! And will talk quietly to you. She loves to lay in your lap and be petted, a definite lap kitty. She is a Master Cuddler!

Shirley's love knows no bounds. She came to APA! pregnant, and then raised not only her 3 kittens, but 3 orphan kittens! She is sweet, she is well-behaved, she is THE BEST.

Shirley likes catnip toys, but mostly she would rather hang out with you. She is more interested in affection than playing, though she did like to play with her kittens. We think she would be a great kid-cat, but since she play-bites gently she might do better with older kids. And we suspect she would be okay around another respectful cat and gentle dog.

Shirley is easy-peasy: she's all about the love! So if you've been pining for a sweet, confident, tranquil, and lovey-dovey feline companion, surely you can find no one who fits that description better than Shirley! Contact us today to arrange a meet & greet.

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.
