Snugglable, Beautiful, Chill

Velvet is a gorgeous blue-grey tabby with the softest fur that proves her name is extremely apt. She also has beautiful green eyes. Velvet has been tirelessly taking care of her kittens in her foster home and is now ready to find her own family. She has been a wonderful guest in her foster home - she's playful, but not too rambunctious despite being young. She likes to nap the day away, but she also enjoys facing off with any toy that has a long, fluffy tail for the chasing and grabbing. Velvet prefers interactive play rather than just batting a toy around by herself.

Once she gets familiar with you, she's quite affectionate. She rolls around when her foster mom appears and waits for pets. She has a quiet, low-frequency purr, but it's definitely there. However, Velvet also knows how to use her cute meows to get what she wants. She loved being around her kittens - they definitely brought out her playful side. She wouldn't mind having a feline friend in her new home. Velvet's foster mom says that she is extremely conscientious - she doesn't scratch inappropriately.

Velvet is a calm, chill cat who goes with the flow, so she needs loving humans who can pay attention to her subtle cues if she's not eating her food with gusto, for example - she's not a complainer! She's a great mix of sweet and independent, calm but fun. The ideal forever home for Velvet would be similarly chill and have a kitty friend.

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.
