Powder Keg is a friendly, playful, and curious little guy! He's a handsome boy, with a creamy orange coat with light gray undertones around his neck and silver at the tip of his tail. He's the first Silver-Tipped Orange Tabby in history (we totally made up that name)!

Don't let his currently-scruffy fur deter you; he had some fur loss from before he came to APA!, but he keeps himself extremely clean and it's growing back in nicely. He is a long cat with a very long tail; sometimes he plays so hard he scares himself a bit and it bushes out into a cute little bottle brush!

Powder Keg is extremely sociable and curious. He wants to explore his entire environment; but even more than that, he wants snuggles and love from both humans and other animals! He adores his brother Dynamite (114777), who he is fostered with, and they can be found either romping wildly or snuggled up together asleep.

He also enjoys attention and snuggles from the resident chihuahua! He would do amazingly with any animal that would accept his attention and play invitations.

While he does love to explore, he can be a tad clumsy but recovers with panache! He's fallen into the shower and was unbothered; and though he leaps onto the bathroom counter daily, sometimes he slips when jumping up. He also accepts being told no, and has learned that the kitchen counters are off limits. Can't do better than a fun, friendly cat who also learns quickly!

Powder Keg is a darling guy who would love to be in a happy home that can give him plenty of attention, stimulation, and buddies to play with. He would love to come with his Dynamite, so if you're looking for a great pair, check them both out! Please consider taking them home together!
