Confident, chatty, kind!

Forte is calm, confident, and outgoing! She loves to be near you! She doesn't like to be held and she's not a lap cat, but she will gladly nap on the back of the couch and be there to help with your emails. Whatever room you're in, she's right there with you. Forte also likes to chat with you to check up on you and to let you know that she's in the mood for a treat! To show her appreciation, she'll lean in and give you soft little kitty kisses with her nose!

When she's not meowing for treats, which is most of the time, Forte likes to entertain herself with a variety of toys. She loves swatting at wands, running through tunnels, and chasing after balls...especially when they're tossed through the tunnel! Anything can be a toy in Forte's mind, so don't be surprised if you see her batting at random household objects. In fact, coffee creamer lids, with their unique shapes and fascinating roll patterns, are her current favorite. She likes to chase a cat dancer toy and likes these little plastic spring-like toys. She also likes to smush her cat hut bed and use it as a command station, and she'll dive on it to scoot it across the floor!

Forte hasn't lived with any children yet, but given her sweet, tolerant nature, we think she'd do well with them. Forte has been the best quarantine buddy, so if you're looking for a furry friend with lots of love to give, Forte is your girl! She would thrive in an active household as she always likes to be around her people. She'd be great with a family who has at least one person with a permanent work-from-home situation if possible!

Forte 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. Forte 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.
