Friendly, loving, hilarious

Cannellini is at the peak of teenaged cat energy and prowess, so he'll keep you entertained for hours with his fearless play. Of course he loves all the usual stuff - chasing balls, leaping for wand toys, and climbing. He'll even climb up onto your head if you let him. He has a special obsession with boxes. Any empty box is a waste of good space, so he will waste no time wedging himself into any box he finds. He can even spend the whole day chasing his shadow!

Cannellini is a prankster, too. If he has to, ahem, pass wind, he'll come and stand right next to you and do it. Must be some kind of obscure teenage cat ritual that only he knows about. But hey, if you need to clear a room of guests who have over-stayed their welcome, he's your man.

Cannellini is no one-trick pony, though. He devotes as much time and energy to loving you as he devotes to playing. This boy is HUGE on cuddling! On a Zoom meeting? He'll be in your lap. Couch-surfing? He'll be right there next to you, showering you with affection and soothing your soul with his loud purrs. Sleeping? He'll stretch out right next to you, wrap his arm around yours, and hug you!

Cannellini is a man of action, not words. He rarely meows, except when he sees that you're dishing up his food. We haven't seen Cannellini with kids, other cats, or dogs. He's such a friendly, social guy that he would most likely do well with other pets, given a proper introduction. His fosters are working with him on keeping his claws in while playing. He never means to hurt anyone, but when he gets really excited about playing, he can forget that humans aren't covered in thick fur to protect them from his claws. For that reason, he's probably not the best choice for a family with very young children.

Cannellini would thrive in a more active home with multiple people to love and play with. He would also benefit from having a kitty friend about his age. Then he could do his wrestling and rougher play with a like-minded kitty friend instead of with his people. Cats who play together also teach each other not to be too rough.

If you're looking for a fun, outgoing, super-cuddly kitty, Cannellini might just be your guy!

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.
