Curious, Playful, Adventurous

Miss Universe is worthy of her namesake title! This beautiful tortoiseshell lady is curious, playful, and talkative. She makes the cutest like 'mrrr' chirps when she wants attention! She likes hanging out near her people, most often in the form of a kitty loaf next to you.

If she's not playing or loafing around, she is always standing up on her hind legs to examine things above her eye-line. Miss Universe's adventurous side extends to being curious about the outdoors-her foster thinks she could do well with harness training and some supervised outdoor exploring time, if her adopters are so inclined.

We think Miss Universe would do well in most homes, especially if she has access to vertical spaces, like a cat tree, for her to hang out! She also loves a good tunnel and is a burrower when it comes to nap time. Contact us to bring this cutie home!

Miss Universe 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. Miss Universe 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.
