Babe is a retired mom cat who did a great job raising a litter of four kittens, and now that her kittens are grown and living independently, she's ready to settle into a loving home of her own! She is very easygoing and affectionate towards people, but she still has a little learning to do in trusting people. Patient humans who give Babe space and time to warm up will be the perfect match for her!

When she first had her kittens, Babe was a little protective, so she's still learning to trust humans. She's warming up quickly, though, and shows a lot of potential to become a super sweet cat. Babe already likes rubbing on her humans' legs and standing on her back to get pets, so with a little more time she will be wanting even more attention! She also loves to greet her humans when they come in the room or when she would like some food.

According to her foster family, Babe seems like the kind of cat who will develop a strong bond to her forever family. A stable, calm environment will work wonders in helping Babe become more trusting of humans and feel more comfortable around them. Then she can show off how sweet and affectionate of a cat she really is!

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.
