Epic, Astounding, THE BEST

Park Ranger has such an amazing rescue story! Her rescuer slammed on his brakes when he saw a tiny kitten cross 4 lanes of traffic on a highway in New Mexico. He jumped out of the car and ran around looking for her, panicking a little because he couldn't find her...and then she meowed pitifully at him from where she had perched on one of his tires when he stopped the car! She was scared, thin, had unkempt fur, and her little foot pads were burned from the hot road...but she settled into his lap for pets, sleeping while he drove to Austin. Being a kitten, she of course woke up and explored the car a little, too.

Fast-forward to today, and Park Ranger is fully healed with the gorgeous coat of a Classic Tabby! Check out her bold stripes and whirls. And she is a happy, playful, people-oriented kitten! She will purr as soon as she sees you, and will make cute little peep sounds as she wanders around the house.

Park Ranger loves-loves-LOVES people! Her favorite game is peekaboo, and you will have as much fun as she does. Here's how it works: both she and you hide behind something, carefully lean out to show each other just one eye, lean back in, and repeat; until Park Ranger can't stand it anymore and runs up to you in a "kitten attack!" Then she runs away and the game starts again. This kitten is going to make you feel young, and she is definitely going to make you laugh!

Park Ranger also gets her game on playing with feathers (in her opinion, peacock feathers are the best because they're long and can double as a wand toy) - and any wand toy!

Park Ranger is so busy being happy and having fun that she doesn't want to sit still in a lap, but we are confident that she could become a lap cuddler at some point. She just needs a beloved human and a lap - and to be tired out from playing peekaboo!

She's amazing, right!? Contact us today to arrange a meet & greet!

Park Ranger 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. Park Ranger 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.
