Gentle, Cautious, Well-Intentioned

Meet Bushnell! This stunning tortoiseshell cat is a true beauty -- and a sweetheart, too!

Bushnell is quite cautious and tends to be fearful of new faces and environments. She's an independent girl who isn't too big on affection and needs some space for herself -- she waits to do most of her playing and exploring at night or when no one is home.

If Bushnell feels uncomfortable with something you're doing, she'll hiss, but she is clearly well-intentioned and will not bring out her claws unless provoked beyond her initial warnings. Bushnell really is a sweetheart underneath her fear, though -- she simply needs some time to become comfortable around you and learn to trust. We are confident that with the love and patience of a forever family, Bushnell will continue to come out of her shell and blossom into a confident, truly delightful companion!

Bushnell would benefit from a patient, laid-back family and a quiet home environment. She's a relatively new arrival to APA, so her foster mamma is still discovering what her ideal forever home might look like -- if you'd like to hear more, write [email protected] and we'll connect you to her foster.

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.
