Playful, Affectionate, Funny!

Cat O Lantern wants to be your best friend! She is very friendly. She arrived in her foster home and in under 3 hours had charmed everyone in the house. She will quickly steal your heart! She loves affection and wants to be near you, preferably sleeping in your lap. She will even give your face a little bath every now and then! It's one of her ways of loving on you.

And this energetic and animated girl is so fun to play with - she will fetch anything you throw for her! She also goes after the string-on-a-stick toy. Actually, she will play with anything she can get her cute little black paws on! Which might be your hands or feet; she can get overly excited and will see your hands and feet as a toy. Gently redirect her to an actual toy and she will learn!

Cat O Lantern resembles a little bobcat with her brown and tan stripes, but she is even cuter because she has an orange nose. She hunts like a little bobcat, too! And if you accidentally leave a waffle fry in a fast food container, she will find it and bring it to you.*

*This actually happened in her foster home!

Cat O Lantern is such a surprise and a delight!

She is chatty and not afraid to pipe up if she wants something; you will learn the difference between her "please feed me" meow and her "please cuddle me" meow!

Cat O Lantern is perfect for a home where she will be loved as much as she loves her humans! Which is a lot. She might like another FeLV+ cat as a play buddy, given the proper introductory period. She also might do well with a cat-friendly dog since she rather has dog-like energy and enthusiasm!

Cat O Lantern 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. Cat O Lantern 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.

Say "Yes" for Sapphire this Giving Tuesday

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
