You've most likely heard the term "hail fellow, well met," possibly while studying the odd Shakespeare play, to describe a person who's enthusiastically hearty, friendly and congenial. With that in mind, we'd like you to meet Alex, our very own "hail feline, well met."
Alex has yet to meet a human who not only takes to him immediately, but finds his warm, sweet personality impossible to resist. They also find his habit of begging for a treat 10 minutes after receiving a treat amusing, even endearing.
Alex enjoys being petted, loves nothing more than watching TV with you on the couch and can't wait to fall asleep with you at night. He's not really a lap cat, but he's an excellent "I want to be right beside this person for the foreseable future" cat. When people aren't available, catnip and feather-on-a-srtring toys are an acceptable substitute.
How Alex would fare with dogs or kids is an unknown, but he does enjoy play-wrestling with his foster's other cat. They're not what you'd call affectionate with each other...just pals. His foster also feels that a small human companion or two would fit right in with Alex's welcoming, unagressive nature. At the same time, attention hog that he is, being an only pet in the house wouldn't exactly break his heart.
Alex's caterwauling (yep, that's where that word comes from) won't bother you at all, because he doesn't do any. In fact, he only meows when he is hungry and, even better, when you are about to feed him.
With so much to recommend him (and just a couple things he needs to work on) it's hard to imagine Alex not moving into a loving home with someone real soon.
Alex is FeLV+ (Feline Leukemia Virus), which causes a weakened immune system and requires special care. APA! provides some medical assistance after adoption. Cats with FeLV+ typically have a shortened lifespan. Alex is not contagious to people or dogs, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats. For more information, please contact APA! or read more by our partner, Best Friends Animal Society: http://bestfriends.org/Resources/FAQs-About-Feline Leukemia-Virus-FeLV/
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.
