Sweet little Erin is here to steal your heart... and your other cat's heart... and your friendly dog's heart. Everybody loves Erin. She's a little shy when other animals come on strong, but ultimately, she gets along with everyone and wants to have a good time. Currently, Erin lives with an energetic husky who tries to play with her. Although she can sometimes find this alarming, she trusts the husky, and you can often find them napping near each other. Erin also lives with a senior cat who historically only tolerates other cats, but Erin's charming personality has naturally warmed even this cat's heart - they are actually friends!

Erin is calm for her age (perhaps she's an old soul - maybe this is why she and the senior cat get along so well). She likes to play with other cats occasionally, but hasn't really figured out playing with humans yet. She's independent, however, she does LOVE snuggling with her humans. She might be one of the best snugglers out there! When you're sitting on your couch, Erin will cozy up on your chest or curl up on your shoulder. And when you're laying in bed, she will squeeze right into any available nook.

If you're the kind of person who enjoys when cats are a little chatty, you're going to love Erin even more. This sweet girl responds to her name and will chat back with you when you talk to her. How cute!! Now, if it's dinner time, and you happen to be bringing out some wet food, she will full-on scream about how excited she is! What's better than wet food!?

Erin could do fine as a solo cat, but she does so well with other friendly cats and dogs, she'd be very happy to have other furry friends!

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.
