Meet Ericht!

Do you want a docile and somewhat lazy kitty who is also the cutest nosybody? She is very interested in what her people are up to and loves to play for short bursts, but mostly remains calm and likes to lounge. Tunnels, cat trees, and hiding spots are her favorite! We're also swooning over her adorable little squeak!

Her spine is shorter than normal due to Manx syndrome, a condition resulting from abnormal development of the spine. Ericht is receiving the care she needs to feel her very best and she has the cutest bunny tail! Her gait is a little stiff and she keeps her jumps small, but any longer-term health concerns should be manageable.

One of the most endearing things about Ericht is seeing her loving, self-assured attitude once you earn her trust. While she can be a little cautious with new people, she just needs a little time to adjust. A slow, patient introduction to her new home would be best, and she may prefer being an only cat, but she is a sweetheart and will squeak at you for attention when she's comfortable. If she gets startled, Ericht is quite the brave and loving girl because she'll come right back to you. Get this girl on your side, and you'll have a curious companion to relax with for life.

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.
