Umbrosia is happy, healthy, and full of energy, but he wasn't always that way. When he arrived at Austin Pets Alive!, Umbrosia was fighting for his life after being attacked by a dog. In addition to broken ribs and other injuries sustained, he was also struggling with a bad respiratory infection and fleas. His spirit was undeniable from the start though, and his medical reports stated that early on he began purring throughout his exams. With help from the dedicated medical team and his nursery caretakers, Umbrosia not only healed, but thrived. After a month of cage rest, he received the all clear to be a normal kitten for the first time in his life.

In foster, Umbrosia has shown what a spunky, amazing kitten he is. He's small for his age, possibly due to his rough start, but has a voracious appetite and a love for bouncing off the walls. He loves to chase feather wands, kick toys, and little red dots equally-he's not picky when it comes to his toys! He's shown interest in the resident adult cat, and to his foster's surprise, Umbrosia has also taken a liking to the resident 75 pound dog. In spite of his early trauma, Umbrosia doesn't seem too wary of dogs and could potentially live with a polite canine companion. He'd also love to go home with a kitten similar in age or size!

One of the best things about Umbrosia? His tiny croak of a meow. He's got the funniest voice, and will definitely get your attention when it's time to eat or play. When he finally tires out, he's got a great purr, too. From his sweet, brave, adventurer personality to his tufts of brown, cream and black tabby fur, Umbrosia is the total kitten package. See him in action at his foster's Instagram, http://www.instagram.com/laurasfosters, and contact us to meet him today!

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.
