Explorer, Independent, Lovebug

Say hello to Twin! Her name is a bit of an oxymoron, as this pretty gray tabby is a very independent gal. Cautious by nature, Twin prefers to observe her surroundings and strangers before she settles in. She has made great strides in her foster home, but she's not a lap cat - she's more of a low-maintenance roommate, which is great for anyone working from home. She won't try to lay on your laptop or demand pets in the middle of your Zoom meeting. Twin can respect your space, as she prefers you respect hers.

Twin spends most of her time lounging in her favorite chair or leisurely roaming around the house. She is usually pretty laidback, but she has her hyper moments. When she's in the mood to play, you'd think she was the Energizer Bunny!

Twin is very curious. She likes to see what's going on (especially if you may be hiding food from her!) She will prowl around to check on various food dishes and the status of her human. She hasn't figured out however that her big ears stick up, even if her eyes are down. It's not uncommon to look over and see some pointy ears sticking out over the edge of a bed or box.

She cannot resist new smells or items in her room: fabrics, boxes of lotions, old t-shirts... she must come and sniff. She'll approach cautiously, perhaps with a box to provide coverage, and work her way toward the intriguing target.

Twin can adapt to living with other cats, but it takes some time. At first, she may hiss or swat at other cats. She has never been in a serious fight with another kitty and prefers to keep her distance. Twin has not yet lived with children, but we're not sure she would be a great match as she is still quite shy and prefers a quiet environment. Twin is not a fan of dogs. She has great litter and scratching manners and is a quiet, polite cat. Well, except when it comes to food - Twin loves to eat and isn't picky!

The purr-fect home for Twin would come with plenty of toys, room to explore, and a nice chair to sit on. Twin prefers quiet, calm environments and loving humans who will let her adjust at her own pace. She would also appreciate a guardian who is willing to spend a few minutes playing with her when she is in the mood.

Twin 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. Twin 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.

What That Animal Rescue Show Means to APA!

Almost a year ago, we were approached by a film crew about a super top secret docuseries being produced by none other than the Austin film legend, Richard Linklater. All we knew about its focus was “t...
