Can you guess where Operation Okie was born? Oklahoma! We know...her name is a giveaway! She couldn't get to Texas fast enough to find her forever home. You can probably hear her happy rumbles right now...they are that loud! She is so glad to be here and can't wait to meet her new family!

We want to let you know right away that Okie's gorgeous, tabby coat is every bit as soft as it looks, think bunny! She is a curious kitty, the first out of the carrier to explore when she arrived at her foster home with her kitten friends. This little detective likes to investigate every nook and cranny!

Okie loves to play! She will play with anything that has a bell and loves chasing balls. Her favorite toy of all is her string toy. She really gets after it!

When Okie is hungry or wants your attention she will let you know with her cute, soft meow. She likes to come and find you to get some pets which immediately gets her purr motor roaring! Sometimes while you're petting her she may gently put her teeth on your hand. This most likely is just par for the course kitten behavior that she will outgrow.

Okie is practically twins with her pretty sister, Cadillac Mountain! These two adore each other and do not like when they are separated. We hope these two best buds can be adopted together.

Okie diligently uses the scratching post and the litter box. She is just an all around great cat!

Operation Okie hopes you will say "okie dokie" to making her a member of your family! She would fit into most any home beautifully. But, she sure would like one that includes Cadillac Mountain. Contact us to schedule a meet and greet!

Operation Okie 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. Operation Okie 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.
