Observant, Shy, Loyal

For the first few days/weeks you have Imaginary Creature, you may wonder if she does actually exist! She prefers to warm up to her new surroundings in hiding, and come out as she becomes comfortable. Do not despair, this beautiful girl is worth the wait once you get to pet her soft, silky fur!

To see her in her purest form, a cat tower set up near a window is necessary! Imaginary Creature likes to keep an eye out on the neighborhood birds, and will keep vigilant watch on their comings and goings! The height also helps her to feel more confident around her humans, and will give her the chance to observe and become comfortable with her family at a safe distance.

You'll know when Imaginary Creature trusts you when she starts to chirp at you! Her sweet little hellos will brighten your day! She may take extra time to become accustomed to new people. As she familiarizes herself with her family, she will be calm and sweet as they move around her, but new people may be a bit of a shock to her. Time and patience is all this shy girl needs to adjust.

Another cat around who has already worked on and purr-fected their social skills may be a great help to Imaginary Creature! She gets along fine with other felines, and could use a go-getter around to show her the ways of being a silly, affectionate cat!

If earning a shy cat's trust with patience and love is something you are ready to tackle, contact APA! today to bring Imaginary Creature home. She can't wait to come out of her shell and show her true affectionate colors!

Imaginary Creature has tested positive for Feline Leukemia. FeLV is not a type of cancer. It's a virus that causes a weaker immune system and often a shorter life-span. For the most part, 'FeLVies' are just like any other cat. APA! waives the adoption fees of these cats, and provides FeLV-related treatment and support post-adoption. Imaginary Creature can only live with other FeLV+ cats, but dogs and other animals are just fine! Any questions? We'd love to talk with you about FeLV care.

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.
