You know how some cheese balls have a nutty exterior that can be a bit rigid, but after a few scoops, you end up in the soft, cheesy center? That is the perfect analogy for Cheese Ball's personality. While in her foster home, Cheese Ball has shown excellent progress in acclimating to the environment. She has begun to purr and especially loves butt scratches. These signs have revealed Cheese Ball's soft, sweet center. Cheese Ball still needs some patience as she continues to shed her solid exterior, which is because she is uncertain about all the recent changes in her life. Sweet girl!

That is why Cheese Ball is looking for a patient person who can respect her boundaries and help her emerge from her shell. When Cheese Ball has had enough of being touched by you, she will make it known. She acts similarly around other cats. She lets her foster cat roommate, Gouda, snuggle with her, and Cheese Ball has even been caught grooming Gouda. When Cheese Ball has had enough time with Gouda, she will throw a minor fuss and then walk away to get some alone time. Because cat.

Cheese Ball is a beautiful girl! Contact us to arrange a meet & greet.

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.
