Four year old Apple is beautiful. She is the kind of cat you notice from across the room. Luxurious midnight black fur with flashes of white, long elegant white whiskers, and an impressive plume of a tail. Her eyes are mesmerizing. And she is even softer than she looks. Stunning. That is really the best word to describe her.

Apple has been very good at the shelter. She likes to be petted, plays (but is a medium energy girl) and mostly just likes to hang around the volunteers, making sure that she is a part of everything and that she will get her fair share of any snacks that are on offer. She really has been a pleasure.

Apple needs an experienced cat owner and a home with no children. We are also recommending that she be an only cat or be in a home with one other cat that is easygoing but not timid. Why are we making these suggestions when our experience with Apple has been so great?

Well, Apple had some anxiety and at least one instance of fear aggression in her last home. (This was not the fault of her adopters- who loved her very much but were unable to manage her anxiety and unpredictability.) Since she has been with us. Apple has been on an anti anxiety medication which she takes extremely easily in a pill pocket. This seems to have made a huge difference, and has allowed Apple to be the pleasant happy cat that she was meant to be! But there are no guarantees.

So Apple needs someone who knows how to care for a complicated cat. She also needs someone who can understand that Apple is not broken or mean; she simply needs a medication to help her move more easily through a world that can otherwise feel unsafe to her.

Apple wants to love and to be loved. She wants days spent in a sunny window and nights spent on the bed. She wants to feel safe and happy and loved. And we want that for her- which means finding her that perfect match.
