Marley is a gentle girl with the spirit of a lion and the heart of a lamb! She abandons 90% of the attacks she plans on her sister, Marie. She will crouch down, creep forward, shake her little hind end, get ready to pounce...and then decide it is enough to know she COULD have completed her surprise attack...and simply abandon the maneuver altogether! Or, she'll run up and slowly raise her paw as if to say, "Tag, you're it!" So cute and funny! She is a lover, not a fighter.

Marley is also a snuggler, and a lap cat-in-training! She loves chin scratches and to be held. It would be great if she and Marie could be adopted together, because Marley definitely needs a friend, and will cry if she is alone.

Marley and Marie are a hilarious team! You get the whole kitten comedy act: kitten wrestling, oh-so-scary-sideways-with-ridged-back-hopping attack mode, butt-shaking-low-to-the-ground crouch attack mode, chasing your own tail in circles (or your sister's, or the resident cat's), zoomies around the house, lots of snuggles, and more!

Marley is a little bit timid, and Marie helps her with that. When she was first introduced to her foster home, she stood in a safe place and peeked around the corner. She saw that Marie was having so much fun, and her curiosity overcame her! So eventually she joined in the fun.

Marley was initially cautious around the very friendly resident adult cat who loves kittens, but she is very curious and is overcoming her fear!

Marley is a doll! Contact us today to arrange a meet and 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.
