Sugar, Spice, Everything Nice!

Spice is one part sugar: She loves to sleep with you! She can take or leave the cuddly lap sitting stuff - sometimes she's all about it, sometimes not - but will rub on you, give you headbutts, and make chirping and trilling sounds to express her affection. Once she gets to know you, she will greet you with a meow and a purr and follow you around the house, just enjoying the hang out time with you; she prefers that to playing, though she does love to give a string toy the business! And she's beautiful, with a silky soft calico coat. She is sweet and lovely.

Spice is one part spice: She is an active, energetic girl! Her foster family taught her how to walk on a leash, and that really appeals to her curious and spirited nature - she loves the sounds, the smells, all the feels. (But beware if you open the door and she isn't on her leash, she might forget and head on out!) Otherwise, she is happy to climb to a high place and check out the view; a high place with a window is an added bonus. This smart girl also knows how to open a drawer - yep, a drawer. And if you have a treat and tell her to sit - she sits! Clever girl. Her lively personality occasionally causes her to nip or use her claws, so her humans should be able to read her body language and learn to anticipate this brief, peppery mood; little kids wouldn't make a good companion for her. She has no use for other cats - or dogs, probably - so a home where she was the only pet is ideal.

Spice is everything nice: Bright, confident, bold, warmhearted - with a dash of sass! She isn't picky about what she eats, and may even try to help herself to what you're eating. Also, check out this video for extra fun - https://bit.ly/2VaX9WD

Spice is the perfect recipe for happiness! Contact us today to arrange a meet & greet.

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.
