This week, Austin Pets Alive! invites you to meet Queen Helena, a cat who loves to perch herself on top of the cat tower and watch the other cats play below. A kind and caring ruler, won't you consider making Helena the queen of your castle?

Sign: Sagittarius

Spayed/neutered: Yes

Adoption donation: $0

What APA! says about Helena:

At APA!, Helena prefers to sleep and relax on top of the cat tower. While she tends to keep to herself, Helena still appreciates being around people (especially if they're willing to provide chin rubs). 

Helena likes to cuddle on your lap and after a little time, she'll be purring and licking your hand as you become best friends.

Since she prizes her alone time, Helena would do best in a quieter home with older children who can give her space. She hasn't spent much time around dogs, but a mellow pooch may be just fine.

Helena is also positive for Feline Leukemia Virus, so she can only cohabitate with dogs or other FeLV+ cats. Helena must also be an indoor and be fed a nutritionally complete and balanced diet.

Why APA! says she deserves your love: 

Helena may be a bit aloof compared with other cats, but she still has plenty of love to give to her new family.
