While Skye isn't the 6 fingered man that killed Inigo Montoya's father, she does share one characteristic with him, extra digits. That's right, Skye is polydactyl. Beautiful and unique!
Besides being polydactyl Skye has a lot of other great things going for her. She's incredibly friendly and will make everyone who enters your house feel right at home.
She does have a lot of energy, so she'll need a good amount of time to run around and get it all out. One of her favorite activities is to play fetch! We swear she's a cat and not a dog!
In addition to being a lovable ball of energy, she does also appreciate some good cuddles. When you sit down on the couch to watch some TV you'll find that she'll make her way over to you. She does like to cuddle on her own terms, but as long as you give her time to settle in you'll get daily and nightly loves. She is a fairly vocal cat, so if you're watching something on TV that she's not into, she'll definitely let you know with her loud purrs! Everyone's a critic!
It's not known how Skye would do around other cats or dogs, she hasn't actually interacted with children so we don't know for sure how she'd do. We have heard that she does great with even the most child-like adults though! The ideal home for Skye would be a home where she can have the freedom to roam and play but also a home where she knows she can come to you for comfort and love.
Skye has tested positive for FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus). FeLV cats have a virus that causes a weaker immune system - they do not have cancer! For the most part, felvies are just like any other cat. You could not pick one out of the crowd, and they generally do not require much additional care. As a bonus, we waive their adoption fees! APA! provides full coverage and treatment for any FeLV-related issues that arise after the time of adoption. Cats with FeLV typically have a shortened lifespan - we like to compare it to the lifespan of adopting a senior kitty, with the added benefit that they don't have chronic senior health problems, and that FeLV related medical care is covered. Skye is not contagious to people, dogs or other animals, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats.

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.
