Elegant. Gentle. Loveable.

This beautiful senior is AJ. She's a long and lean tabby with big Fu Manchu whiskers that accentuate her precious face.

AJ is super chill 90% of the time. During the day, she'll often follow her human around the house to keep tabs on what they're up to. She's happy to join you for a snuggle, then will find her own space to settle down for a long nap.

As for the other 10%, she likes to play with wand chaser toys and will occasionally instigate a game of chase with her kitten foster buddy -- but only when she thinks no one is looking. She's usually quiet, but will notify you of an empty food dish with a throaty Mrrrrrowww.

AJ came to APA in sad shape. She was severely underweight with a shabby coat and several medical conditions, including hyperthyroidism and dental disease. Thanks to APA's medical team and a loving foster, she's gained some weight and is feeling much better, but she will need some long-term medical care, which may include medications and a specialized diet.

We think AJ would prefer to spend her senior years as an only kitty, or with a fur family that's as calm and gentle as she is. If you'd like an appreciative friend who will love you for taking care of her but is not overbearing or demanding, AJ's the lady for 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.
