Sweet Apple is probably one of the most well-adjusted pets her foster has cared for. As soon as she walks into a new place, she makes herself right at home and begins exploring. She can keep herself entertained if she has toys and isn't afraid to push her way in for food or treats. This girl is surprisingly spunky for her age and can keep up with the resident kitten! After spending the day hanging out or snoozing, she has some big zoomies and loves small plushies or any toy that rolls.

While generally not very vocal, Sweet Apple has a really cute habit - she briefly warbles in excitement if she has one of her plushies in her mouth. The joy from plushy playtime is overwhelming! Otherwise, she will meow occasionally, but most of the time it's soft.

Sweet Apple is almost overly affectionate. One of her most endearing qualities is how quick she is to approach you for love. All she wants to do is cuddle! She doesn't really understand the concept of personal space and will repeatedly try to sneak into her foster's lap while she's working. Once in your lap, she is conveniently located to receive all the affection she craves! This darling girl is a bona fide velcro cat. Since being alone for long periods is very stressful for her, she prefers to either be directly on you, within a few feet, or with other fur babies.

Overall, Sweet Apple has been doing really well in foster care and is looking forward to find her forever home. She spends most to all of her day with the resident female kitten and male cat. She'll lounge around with them and awkwardly try to initiate play before running off. If they initiate play, with her or each other, she'll join in. She can get a little more sassy if she isn't feeling well if one of the cats walks into her or she walks into them, but that's fairly typical behavior.

Generally speaking, Sweet Apple does well when slowly introduced to dogs and is even pretty tolerant of unconventional pets too. She gently plays with one resident pup and wants to rub on the other. Dogs that prefer some space may appreciate such slow introductions because Sweet Apple doesn't understand personal space and wants to be friends with everyone! Plus, Sweet Apple has been around three young children with no issues. She loves being petted and can be trusted around small hands.

Sweet Apple Acres has Chronic Kidney Disease, which means her kidneys are not functioning as well as they once were. This condition is so common in older cats that APA! offers a special adoption package for them. Read more about renal failure and adoption details here: https://bit.ly/2YudG90.

In Sweet Apple Acre's ideal home, someone would be there most of the time to keep her company. They'd be comfortable giving her daily meds, as needed. She'd also like to live with another cat or two. She would appreciate an available lap, lots of love, and plushies to play with! If you ask us, we think this cuddle monster is just precious!
