Chatty, affectionate, snuggly!

Spitfire is quite the looker! This brown tabby has a black and white fluffy tail, sock feet, and perhaps the biggest eyes you'll ever see. She likes to play, especially with her laser pointer and her catnip mouse. She is very affectionate too! She loves LOVE. She is a lap-lover who is never very far from you, and is spoiled for hugs and kisses and chin scratches. The more affection the better, as far as she is concerned!

She is a chatty little girl who is always ready with little kitten chirps and chortles all day long. She loves a good conversation!

Spitfire is playful with other cats. She would be good with another young cat or an older cat who will indulge her zest for life. Spitfire is great with kids too! She likes belly rubs and will let them hold her like a baby. She is very gentle!

Spitfire loves people - ALL people - and wants to be the first to greet you when you come home! She would love a furrever home with people who want to love and be loved. She can't wait to share her love and life with you - and life will be a big Snugglefest with Spitfire around!

Spitfire had tested positive for FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus). FeLV cats have a virus that causes a weaker immune system - they do not have cancer! For the most part, felvies are just like any other cat. You could not pick one out of the crowd, and they generally do not require much additional care. As a bonus, we waive their adoption fees! APA! provides full coverage and treatment for any FeLV-related issues that arise after the time of adoption. Cats with FeLV typically have a shortened lifespan - we like to compare it to the lifespan of adopting a senior kitty, with the added benefit that they don't have chronic senior health problems, and that FeLV-related medical care is covered. Spitfire is not contagious to people, dogs or other animals, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats. 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.

APA!’s Barn Cat Program Provides You With Your Favorite Whiskered Workers

Some cats prefer mice-hunting to bird-watching, and some prefer laying in grass to sitting on laps. Here at APA!, we believe that barn cats still deserve a chance to live happy and healthy.
