Frisky and fun with a touch of goofiness!

Dexter is an adult but still loves to play like a kitten! He will hunt down any jingle ball in the vicinity and carry it off to his lair. He'll also leap into the air with joyful abandon to snag a wand toy.

He has the adorable habit of cocking his head to the side like a parrot when he's interested in or curious about something. Couple this with his darling little kangaroo pose and he's an internet star in the making! Dexter has just a stubby little chicken wing remnant of his front right leg, but that doesn't stop him from running around and going where he wants to go. Tripod kittles adapt so well to their condition and live their lives with gusto.

Dexter is still a bit shy with people but will happily lick churru off your finger. He might even lean in for a few pets. His shyness totally disappears around cats - he absolutely loves them! He lived with cats before he came to us, and he is already besties with his foster's own cats. Shy cats often greatly benefit from living with other cats who are friendly and confident around humans. They teach the shy cat how wonderful human love can be!

Dexter would thrive in a home with gentle people who will play with him and let him adjust at his own pace. He would especially love to have a kitty friend or two in his forever home!

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.
