Quiet - Sweet - Shy

Once Scuttle warms up, she is very happy to cuddle with you, but she is timid and a little scared at first. Once you're holding her, she will purr and purr, but it's hard for her to ask for affection sometimes. Scuttle likes to be held and to snuggle against your neck. She likes to be next to you or on you in bed. Scuttle even seems to like to watch TV, making her the perfect Netflix buddy. Once she warms up around you and feels comfortable, she is playful like most kittens and likes to climb, nibble, and play with toys that have strings.

Scuttle's ideal home would be one with dogs or small children, as she is a little timid. She'd love a quiet home where she can get lots of cuddles, but on her own terms, and with a patient adopter who won't mind giving her the time and space to come out of her shell and get to know and love them. Your patience will be rewarded by so many purrs, and by loving looks from this cute little face.

Scuttle has tested positive for Feline Leukemia (FeLV). It is possible for kittens six months and younger to shed this virus completely and test negative, so Scuttle will be re-tested for FeLV at her six month birthday, at which time a definitive diagnosis can be assured. Until then, she should live with no other cats or kittens to ensure the virus is not passed. Scuttle is available for adoption now to adopters who can accommodate a feline leukemia positive, or negative, cat as she is not yet of age to have a definitive test. For more information, please contact APA! or read more by our Partner, Best Friends Animal Society: http://bit.ly/2FwYCxR

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.
