Shy, Curious, Playful Chulo is a beautiful, jet black senior kitty with bright green eyes! She is looking for a patient and kind human to help her come out of her shell; the key to her heart is gentle petting and lots of love. Chulo spent her life in a loving home with other cats and dogs, but sadly, her human passed away, and Chulo's life completely changed. She is understandably nervous about new places and people since leaving her home. When you meet her, it might be on her terms; she may have found a safe place to hide for a while - like under a bed - until she feels safe and comfortable. But she doesn't mind if you pet her while she rests in her hidey-hole! Chulo has a strong, happy purr and can be quite affectionate with people she trusts. She is very polite, uses her litterbox consistently, plays with toys, and takes advantage of scratching posts instead of furniture. Chulo is a sweet kitty who's ready to settle in to her forever home! She would do best in a quiet, low-traffic home and would probably mesh well with other easy-going cats (she's doing great with the younger cat who is sharing her foster home!), and maybe even a cat-friendly dog. She takes a while to warm up, but if you're patient she'll reward you with plenty of purrs! Contact us today to arrange a meet and greet with Chulo. 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.
