Mischievous, House-Tiger, Genius

Kitt is quite the package, he's sure to keep you on your toes! Kitt loves to get into things. No door, cabinet, or room should ever be closed in his opinion; he wants to have all his options open for exploration. Kitt believes in this philosophy so strongly that he has taught himself how to open lower cabinets so he can climb in and make himself a bed. He also loves to play with ribbon toys when he emerges from the cabinets.

Kitt's big size and orange markings make him look like a mini tiger. His appearance also resembles Puss in Boots from Shrek. Despite his feisty appearance, Kitt is a total sweetheart on the inside which will melt your heart just like the adorable face Puss in Boots makes. When you start petting him, Kitt will melt into the ground and enjoy all the love that you have to share. You'll be able to pick Kitt up and give him plenty of belly rubs. The key to Kitt's heart is when you scratch his cheek - he just can't resist a good cheek scratch! Kitt has a deep, rumbling purr that is soothing to hear.

Kitt can be a little bit skittish while he adapts to a new environment. When you first bring him home, he might jump at any new sounds, but as he adapts and gets more comfortable, you'll get to see his loving and mischievous side. Kitt is still learning what he is and is not allowed to do. For example, he's currently learning how to use a scratch post, rather than the couch. With a little bit of patience and guidance, Kitt will be able to learn what he can't scratch and chew on.

Kitt's beloved human passed away, so he is looking for a new loving home. He came to APA! with his buddy, Donovan (APA ! ID 22348), and they get along fine. If you'd like to see more of Kitt, you can find him on his foster's Instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/tbar_fosters_cats/.

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.
