Curious, Attention Seeking, Playful

Meet Caribou! This loving little lad is already scheming to steal your heart. And trust us, he will succeed!

When Caribou becomes fond of you, he will let you know! Caribou will greet you at the door every time you come in, and he will always be open to pets. At night, he will settle down next to you and snuggle up to you in bed, where he will slow-blink you both to sleep. Caribou loves to vibe around people, so you can count on him to be your bubble of orange sunshine AND your shadow!

Caribou loves to put on a show! When he's tumbling around with his mouse toy, or when he gets his burst of kitten energy, you can't not chuckle at his silly antics! He has a super curious mind, so he can entertain himself easily---either with and without your help. When he's alone, Caribou may meow to himself for fun. If you're lucky, you'll catch him having a full-blown conversation with himself. And when Caribou catches the zoomies, his favorite activity is jumping!

When Caribou is on his breaktime, he will happily relish in pets! If you give him head pats, he will do a complete bend and shut his eyes tight to really enjoy the experience. There, he will purr for minutes on end---he is reciprocating the tranquil remedies to you. How thoughtful!

Caribou currently has scarring over both his eyes. Although it doesn't hinder his way of life, he would much prefer being loved carefully and gently. Vision-impaired cats are amazing. They learn to navigate their environment using their superpower hearing and memory. Show Caribou where things are, and soon he will be walking around the house like a cat with perfect vision; in fact, you might sometimes forget that he is vision-impaired, he's that skillful!

Between his goofball tendencies and sweet kitty etiquette, Caribou would also make a great kitty-to-kitty partner; from cuddling to bouncing around, he loves to be around his cat companions! Even though he may take some time to open up, Caribou has great potential to be a BFF (best feline friend).

Caribou would thrive in an active yet patient family. He would feel the comfiest around a human who's willing to slowly open him up, though he shouldn't take too long given the right conditions! Caribou is a bright, animated, and happy kitten. If your home is missing another resident silly goose, Caribou would love to pour his charm and affection at you!

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.
