Pegasus came to APA! as a tiny kitten. He was born with hip bones that do not connect correctly to his spine, so he has crooked back legs - but he can climb and jump, as well as wrestle with the resident adult cat in his foster home, no problem!

Sometimes life isn't fair for sweet kitties, and Pegly surely was dealt a crummy hand. Even so, he gets along with everyone - he adores people, is easy with other cats, and totally ignores the small senior dog in his foster home. He is affectionate and loving, so happy to head bump you, have you hold him, and snuggle in your lap! He is always up for a good head scratch and face rub. When he is really happy, he will wag his tail!

Pegly is laid-back and quiet, and each day always includes a good nap and quality time in a sunny window. But he loves to play, especially with his bird-on-a-string toy. He will also chase a toy ball all around the house. He easily scales his 3-story cat tower and if you break out the catnip, get ready; this boy loves his 'nip!

Pegly's congenital birth defect causes semi-incontinence and constipation issues. He uses the litter box to pee, but pooping is hard for him. He needs a combination of medications and special care to keep him healthy.

Pegly's new humans absolutely will delight in his affectionate, spirited, and easy-going personality. They will need to be willing to care for this special boy to keep him healthy, and should be okay with using puppy pads (or newspapers or towels) around the house, since Pegly's medical condition makes him leak poop. For lots of people, that is too much to ask; but there are some who are looking to help a kitty who needs them the most, and Pegly is in that category. He has normal urinary habits and relieves himself in a litter box lined with newspaper (or on a puppy pad).

Cute and sweet, Pegly is looking for a special someone who will love and care for him. You won't find a more kindhearted, cheery, all-around awesome kitty. Contact us today for more information!

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.
