Snuggly, Easy-going, Sweet

Norma is the perfect companion for someone who is looking to be doted on by a wise old lady who occasionally likes to chat, but mostly likes to be on your lap. She's good with people of all ages, and has spent time with babies and children. She's tolerant of their kiddo ways and enjoys cuddling with them and will even request pets. They always eagerly oblige!

Norma was surrendered to the shelter when her family moved overseas. It wasn't an easy decision for them to give up their beloved cat. But, they were advised the trip might prove too difficult for a senior kitty. Norma's best cat buddy, Josh, also was brought to the shelter. These two get along nicely with each other, sharing sunbeams, cozy spots and love. Norma wants nothing to do with dogs. So, she would need a home that does not include canines.

Norma is very healthy for her age. She has lost some of her teeth as often happens during the golden years. But, other than some drool, it's no big whoop. She just needs to eat wet food and all is well. She takes medication to help keep her anxiety level low and has a few minor medical needs. But, the years have not affected her lovely demeanor... she still has a perky, sweet attitude that endears her to everyone she meets.

If you are interested in loving a cuddly senior, Norma would be honored to be your lap warmer and faithful friend! Contact us to meet her!

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.

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...
