Curious, Playful, Loving

Jiminy is much more cuddly than her cricket namesake - purrier and prettier too! Instead of chirping like a cricket, Jiminy prefers to meow, but only when she's lonely or bored. And the best way to cure her boredom is by playing or snuggling with her - two of her favorite activities!

Jiminy is a curious, inquisitive girl who loves to explore all sorts of places. There's no place too high or too tight for her to want to check out, and she'll do whatever it takes to get up or in there! Jiminy is also very playful and will play with anything she can find, especially toes! She also enjoys playing with other cats too, and would be happy to be adopted with her sister!

Being near her humans is very important to Jiminy since she's so affectionate. She loves being snuggled and rubbing her head against her foster to show how much she loves her! Since Jiminy loves humans so much, she would love to go to a home where she can get lots of quality snuggle time with her people. Aside from some loving humans, all Jiminy needs is a kitty companion and some climbable structures, and she will be one happy girl!

Jiminy has tested positive for Feline Leukemia. FeLV is not a type of cancer. It's a virus that causes a weaker immune system and often a shorter life-span. For the most part, 'FeLVies' are just like any other cat. APA! waives the adoption fees of these cats, and provides FeLV-related treatment and support post-adoption. Jiminy can only live with other FeLV+ cats, but dogs and other animals are just fine! Any questions? We'd love to talk with you about FeLV care.

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.
