Chirpy, Affectionate, Cat Buddy

Introducing Ponyboy!

Ponyboy melts when you pet him and give him attention. He'll even show you his belly for rubs if you've gained his trust. Everyday he gets more confident and loving.

This kitty will tell you when he's hungry! He'll rub up against you and if you're still not listening, he'll let out some soft cries. He trots and chirps when he's happy and feeling playful. Isn't that adorable?

He's been a perfect litter box user and even uses a robotic litter box without issue. Ponyboy loves cat scratchers the most and he likes wrestling with his littermate Cherry. One of his favorite things is cuddling up in a soft bed.

Ponyboy lived in an outdoor cat community without much human interaction as a young kitten, so he needs a patient person to show him how nice humans are and help him grow his trust. He has shown us that with time, he can be a very loving kitty! He isn't crazy about being held right now and should be supervised around small children because he may give love nips when he's hungry.

Ponyboy absolutely loves other cats! He might just be a cat's cat. His foster's resident adult cat helps Ponyboy build his confidence. He loves being groomed and is very affectionate with his littermate Cherry. Ponyboy would do best with a confident cat as his companion. While with his foster, he has been so brave around big German Shepherd foster dogs, so he could very likely live with a dog just fine.

This boy is a cat lover with a big personality and even bigger purrs! It would be a huge bonus if he found a home with a confident buddy cat that likes other cats. Ponyboy and his littermate Cherry (APA! ID 116476) are tussling partners and would love to be adopted together so they can stay playmates forever!

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.
