Friendly, Affectionate, Sweet
You can't judge a book by its cover, or a cat either for that matter! Take Tulipe...some might see a grumpy face and keep moving, never getting to know the super sweet and friendly kitty that resides inside. Boy, would they be missing out! Tulipe is an extremely affectionate cat who loves being petted. As for her appearance, we think her cranky expression is pretty darn adorable and her twisty whiskers too!
Tulipe has Chronic Renal Disease, which means her kidneys are not functioning as well as they once were. This condition is so common in older cats that APA! offers a special adoption package for them. Read more about renal failure and adoption details here: http://www.austinpetsalive.org/2016/03/lives-worth-saving-cats-in-renal-failure. It also appears that Tulipe is anemic and may need some simple oral meds to treat it along with a prescription diet.
If you're interested in a good read in the form of an awesome cat, come meet Tulipe today!
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.
