Frail, Elegant, Optimistic
When Selena arrived at APA! she was very sick and severely underweight. With the APA! medical team and staff treating her medical issues, mainly chronic kidney disease (by putting her on a renal diet which she happens to love!), Selena has started to feel better but she still needs a lot of TLC.
For a cat so frail, Selena has great poise. As she attentively observes her surroundings, she holds her head high with the elegance of a queen. Her big round eyes shine with determination to persevere and enjoy life. Selena is a kind soul who enjoys attention and being gently stroked. Much deserving of your adoration, she won't hesitate to request another one of those nice head rubs.
Selena's purrfect home would be with someone who understands the needs of an elderly cat and will patiently handle her medical issues. Because of her age and chronic medical conditions, it would be best for Selena not to be around other cats, dogs, or kids who could stress her out. She would love to live somewhere quiet with a nice soft bed near a sunny window where she can curl up and relax!
Selena is on a special diet prescribed by a veterinarian. For more information, please contact APA!
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.
