Smart. Quick. A Treasure.

Sleek and sweet, Mamma Bear came to APA! from a kind soul who had been caring for her community for five years. When all her siblings went away, Mamma Bear decided it was time to try life indoors.

As the only cat in a quiet home, Mamma is acclimating quite well. She's not a fan of loud noises (but who is?) and needs someone who will be slow and gentle with her as she learns to trust them. But she enjoys the shelter and care of a foster, and will happily sit next to you for chin rubs and neck scratches. She'll let you know she appreciates you with a headbutt and a soft, satisfied purr.

Now that she's experiencing life indoors, Mamma would do best in a quiet home with no kids or dogs. She's lived as part of a cat colony, but we haven't had a chance to see how she acts with other indoor cats.

Mamma Bear is ready to find that perfect forever family who can show her all the joys of a pampered life. Is that you?

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.
