Calm. Gentle. Affectionate.

Meet Ellis. This lovely lady was a wonderful mom to her kiddos, attending to their every want and need. Now that they are weaned, she's ready for some pampering of her own.

Ellis is very chill. She will bat a wand toy around occasionally, but she's more interested in staring out windows and lying next to her human. She adores chin and head scratches. When she is really into them Ellis tilts her whole head back and her mouth hangs open while she purrs. Ellis is a total people cat. She'll even sleep in your bed. But don't worry about feeling smothered by her love. Ellis is content to do her own thing, like gaze out a window or nap nearby. She's the purr-fect mix of affectionate and independent.

The ideal home for this retired mama would have ample window space for Ellis to watch the outdoors and a loving family to pamper her. Ellis enjoys gentle handling, so we think a home without young children might be the best fit for her. She may also enjoy being an only cat, or being adopted with one of her kittens.

You can see more of Ellis on her foster's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/atxkittenfostermama.

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.
