Tootsie is tiny! She has a cute pixie face with a beautiful orange blaze. She loves making biscuits in a blanket and is a purr machine when you hold her - or even when she's simply hoping you will pick her up for pets! She's sweet and submissive and will let you hold her like a babydoll, in your arms on her back. She will bask in your attention until you put her down, and then will follow you around seeking more pets and scritches! She's a lovely, affectionate girl.

Tootsie particularly likes this whole working-from-home thing that humans are doing these days! She loves a good lap when she's not busy making sure that any stray pens on the desk find their way to the floor. She is a motivated co-worker!

Napping is her super power; she can (and will) sleep anywhere! If you're a napper, you've met your new best friend!

Tootsie loves to roughhouse and plays well with her sister, Laffy Taffy (APA! ID 90027)!

Tootsie knows that scratching posts are much better than furniture for sharpening claws and has ladylike manners when eating or using the litterbox. She's a wonderful companion for anyone looking for a sweet, gentle little lady! And you'll always know where your pens are with Tootsie on the job.

Tootsie 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. Tootsie 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...
