Say hello to Bitsy! She came to APA! as a feral cat, but she has made incredible progress. Bitsy does require a lot of attention and some time to warm up to others but seeing her relaxed and happy makes it worth all the effort.

After Bitsy settles in, you'll realize that she is a total lovebug! She is a HUGE snuggler and will come running once someone is sitting on the couch or lying down to cuddle up to them. At night, she likes to sleep in the bed right next to you.

Bitsy is tiny and has the cutest face, but she definitely packs a sassy attitude! She loves to talk and will make sure to let you know if she doesn't like something with one of her signature meows.

Bitsy is currently living with her foster brother named Kyo. While it took her a few days to get used to his presence, the two are good friends now. She can often be found playing chase or wrestling with him. Once they've both tired themselves out, they'll snuggle up to each other to relax. Bitsy doesn't have much experience with dogs, but we think she would be open to hanging out with one after a proper introduction.

As a former feral cat, it is incredibly important that Bitsy feels safe in her home. The ideal guardian for her would be understanding, patient, and able to help her come out of her shell. Bitsy will need some time to settle in, but once she does, you'll find that she is the sweetest girl in the world.

If you'd like to provide Bitsy with a loving home, come meet her soon!

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.
