Curious, energetic, sweet

Sparklemuffin lives up to her name! She is a high-energy kitty who radiates imagination, curiosity, and fun. Watching this cat play is more entertaining than TV with zero commercial breaks. When she's not zooming around terrorizing her toys and imaginary friends, she loves to snuggle and purrs like a V-8 engine the minute you pick her up.

Sparklemuffin's coat is a sassy blend of grey and orange mackerel tabby stripes. It's as if she couldn't decide which one she wanted to be; one side of her nose is distinctly orange and the other side grey! Her toes are also a mix of black licorice and bubblegum pink jellybeans.

Speaking of toe beans, Sparklemuffin loves a good tickle between them and is fine with having her toenails clipped! In fact, this little love muffin is also a champ at taking her meds and having her baby teeth brushed, can you believe it? (Don't be alarmed about the meds - she is healing just fine and is waiting for a thumbs-up from her doctor.)

Don't let her squeaky little meow fool you, when SparklemuffinTV is in ON you won't want to look away. Anything and everything is a worth a thorough investigation, including your arms and feet. While she came to APA! as an orphan, she would do well with a nice partner-in-crime to investigate the world; she has lots of energy! She doesn't have experience with dogs (slow, supervised intros could do the trick), and would be fine with older kids since her play dial goes to 11.

Scoop up this sweetie and she'll add both sparkle and sweetness to your life!

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.
