In addition to being an angel, Arctic Angel is a deep purring, shirt-wearing, biscuit maker extraordinaire! Arctic has put in her request for someone to love. Her requirements are simple (in order):

1) Pets: preferably two-handed, but she will accept one hand at a time.
2) Food: her favorite is the good wet food.
3) Cozy comfort: A fuzzy blanket to call her bed.

Arctic is a stunning, irresistible grey-brown balayage lady (in kitty language, she is a "dilute tortoiseshell") who takes life a little slower knowing she deserves to be pampered. She came to APA! with an adorable half-tail (now healed) and a semi-permanent blep (tongue slightly out) from removed teeth (she is so much happier after her dental procedure!).

Arctic acts timid, but one gentle pet will melt her into you. She flips and flops so you can pet every inch of her, all while making biscuits and purring. It is almost impossible to stop giving her all the loving from the pure joy she exudes.

She is a rule follower, using all the proper cat amenities as expected, including her favorite scratch-n-stretch routine after a nap on the vertical scratcher. She would love a low-key life where she isn't expected to play much and can be heard purring next to you throughout the day or on a higher landing to survey her kingdom. She will love having you home, but when you do leave, she will be sure to greet you with a welcome back meow or two and prance around at your feet till you give her a few scratches. Real best friend material.

Arctic is currently working through an overgrooming struggle and her closet includes cute t-shirts to keep her comfy and furry. We are unsure how long this will last and until then she requests the comfiest, most fashionable tees to wear around and show-off. She really knows how to sport a grungy tee! Peep the pictures/videos of her showing off how good she looks in clothes (which she allows to be placed on her like it was meant to be).

Arctic prefers a calmer home where she can be spoiled and adored in exchange for more affection than you would know is possible from a cat. She does well with other feline friends, but dogs and kiddos are unknown.

Inquire about Arctic to schedule a meet and greet and find out why we are so obsessed with her!

Arctic Angel has stomatitis which is an inflammation of the mouth. It is typically resolved through removal of teeth and supportive care. She currently requires some extra medical care which may include medications and specialized diet. For more information, please contact APA!

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.
