Calm, cautious, beautifully elegant!

Virgo is a stunning black kitty with legs for days! She's not very interested in toys or playing, but she does love to watch the birds and gets REALLY excited to see one close to the window. She prefers full body pets and scratches under the chin, but she is too dignified to enjoy being held or sitting in your lap. She is a lady after all and a lady keeps all 4 feet on the ground!

Virgo is fairly quiet and will meow mildly when food arrives, but for the most part she's not really a talker. She prefers to communicate with those big beautiful green eyes of hers! She can be fearful of loud noises and new situations, like most of us. All she needs is a place to hide until she feels safe. She's never lashed out when she feels scared, she just needs her space when something startles her.

Virgo tolerates SO much from her kittens. They will bite and wrestle her tail and she doesn't even bat an eyelash. She hasn't met any dogs or kids yet, but she doesn't even flinch when the dogs in her foster home bark at the doorbell. She's also seen the dogs and does not seem to have an opinion one way or the other. She would most likely do well with older children who know when to give her the space she desires!

Virgo would thrive in a furrever home where she can get her favorite full body pets in a quiet and calm environment! She really just wants a safe place where she can watch the world from a window perch and be spoiled! She would love a home where she could be treated like the queen that she 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.
