Sweet - Cautious - Cuddly
Pippa is an adorable orange and white kitty with the softest fur. She's a delicate-looking little girl, but she's more than happy to roll over on her back, legs up in the air, for her favorite thing: belly rubs! This poor cat was shot with a BB gun, but has healed well and did not sustain lasting damage. Now she just wants to have a forever home where she can enjoy endless petting and relaxation.
Pippa has lived with another dog and cat, but they weren't the best roommates, so she's been cautious around other animals. Hopefully if she met another pet who was more welcoming, she wouldn't be as timid.
She is a very quiet cat - no incessant meowing here! Pippa also has wonderful scratching and litter box manners, so she's obviously quite a good housemate. She enjoys playing with string every so often, but she really prefers to chill out most of the time. The ideal living situation for Pippa would involve plenty of belly rubs and attention, some cat furniture to climb, and some loving humans who will make her feel at home.
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.
