Miss Thang is the whole package: beauty, brains, and a super sweet personality! She has the most beautiful golden eyes that really pop from her pretty black fur, which she can hopefully use to hypnotize you into falling in love with her!

Miss Thang came to APA all the way from Kansas, so she's hoping you'll show her some true Texas hospitality! Open your home and heart to her, and Miss Thang will respond by becoming your most loving and loyal friend! Even though she's not a super cuddly kitty, Miss Thang loves to follow her foster around the house and relax nearby. So she may not seek out your lap right away, but she is always interested in what you're doing.

Since she's a young cat, Miss Thang still has the energy of a kitten! She loves to play, especially with any string-like toys and toys that will bounce in the air. Bells, however, are her least favorite things; Miss Thang was very grateful when her foster taped up the noisy bell on one of her toys! Needless to say, she would not enjoy a collar with a bell on it.

Miss Thang isn't very vocal, but she does have a squeaky little meow! She's curious too, always wanting to know what her foster is up to and investigating anything and everything - especially that mysterious cat in the mirror. Miss Thang hasn't met any other cats, dogs, or kids, but since she's so friendly, she would probably be okay with appropriate introductions. The perfect home for her is one with loving people who will provide her with plenty of toys!

Miss Thang 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. Miss Thang 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.
