Stealth-cuddlebug, Playful, Adorable

Peridot is a vividly bright and striking jewel that will encapsulates your heart. Are we talking about the sparkly green stone or the kitten? Both!

Peridot is coy about how much he enjoys affection. But, we see right through his charade! He acts shy and like he isn't wild about being picked up. But, he LOVES to be petted, a dead giveaway of his snuggly nature! When you scratch the back of his neck, he closes his eyes and arches his back in pure bliss! He likes to climb on your lap when he thinks you're not looking and wants to sit as close to you as possible. If he sees you petting another kitten, he will immediately appear and want some pets too!

Peridot also likes to play it cool when it comes to playing with his kitten friends. He will sometimes sit up on a perch while his buddies romp around. But, he really wants to be in on the fun! Is that a mouse being batted around? He wants to bat it too! Oh, looks like a laser pointer - Peridot is in full sprint across the room to take it down! When friends are involved, this cutie is never far behind.

Peridot is a climber and loves to be up, up, up high! You will often find him on top of the cat tree surveying his domain. He also loves watching squirrels, birds and TV. Turn on a workout video and he will watch the screen as you workout - you're very own purry personal trainer!

Peridot gets along great with the adult cat and the 6-month-old kitten in his foster home. He would love to be adopted with his sister, Tanzanite (APA#100930). But, he is comfortable with his independence and we think he would be fine with a different cat buddy.

Peridot is such a snuggly, sweet little gem! Contact us for an introduction!

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.
