Austin Pets Alive! works hard to find pets forever homes, but sometimes circumstances have animals returning to APA! after they are first adopted. Such is the case with Peanut, a plump, plus-sized kitty who came back to APA! after her elderly owner was no longer able to care for her. But with Peanut's sweet disposition, we are confident that someone out there will be a perfect match for this lovable cat.

What APA! says about Peanut:

She was known as Peanut when APA! first met her, but she later went by Marilyn because of her beauty mark.

You can see that Peanut is of ample proportions, but she still loves her playtime. APA! is confident that with the right diet — and plenty of activity — she will slim down. 

She is very affectionate with people, but sometimes she gives an overeager little love nip, so Peanut may do best in a home without small children. Peanut lives peacefully with other cats, but she does tend to overeat if she feels like she has to compete at the food dish.

Why APA! says she deserves your love:

Peanut is a cat who craves human affection. Her return to APA! means a second chance at finding her human best friend.
