What APA! says about Calista 7:

"Callie is sweet, shy, timid."

When you rub her backside, she likes it so much that her tail will rise up into a curly-Q shape. She loves to be petted but (at this point) isn't a cuddler. She is gentle and sweet, but is a bit introverted right now.

Why APA! says she deserves your love:

Callie will play a little with the feather toy, but she's a mellow cat rather than a rowdy one. Calista gets along well with other kitties. She's a pretty tortie looking for a quiet home with a patient, loving owner who will help her come out of her shell, bloom and ultimately grow into the great companion cat we think she is meant to be.

To learn more and adopt Callie, visit the APA! website.
