Animated. Adoring. Vivacious.

With her silky black coat and gorgeous orange eyes, Crickey is a stunner!

But looks aren't all this sweet girl has going for her. Crickey is super affectionate! She'll greet you with a meow and a headbutt and then settle in for all the head pets and scritches you have to give. If she had her way, Crickey would nuzzle and cuddle with you all day long.

The only thing Crickey might love more than cuddling is playtime. She especially loves wand toys and chasing her brother, Mushy. She's quite an acrobat and has a lot of energy to burn. She would love to have a young kitty sibling to play with -- perhaps even her brother Mushy! They arrived at APA! together and would love to be adopted together so they can stay best friends forever! Check out Mushy at https://bit.ly/3u93VOBC

Crickey's ideal forever home would be one that can give her a lot of attention - especially at playtime; she doesn't like to be bored! Crickey's acrobatics and antics are sure to amuse and she'll reward you with love and affection.

Come meet her today!

Crickey has tested positive for Feline Leukemia. FeLV is not a type of cancer. It's a virus that causes a weaker immune system and often a shorter life-span. For the most part, 'FeLVies' are just like any other cat. APA! waives the adoption fees of these cats, and provides FeLV-related treatment and support post-adoption. Crickey can only live with other FeLV+ cats, but dogs and other animals are just fine! Any questions? We'd love to talk with you about FeLV care.

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.
