Sweet, Cuddly, Easy-going

You've most likely heard the term "hail fellow, well met" while studying the odd Shakespeare play, which describes a person who is 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 and having his belly rubbed, watching TV with you on the couch, and falling asleep with you at night. He is a total lap cat and an excellent "I want to be right beside this person for the foreseeable future" cat. When people aren't available, catnip and a feather-on-a-string toy are perfectly acceptable substitutes! As is a pile of blankets that he can burrow under for an invisible-to-the-human-eye catnap.

How Alex would fare with dogs or kids is an unknown, but in his past he has enjoyed play-wrestling with a previous foster's resident cat. They're weren't what you'd call affectionate with each other...just bro-pals. Also, a small human companion or two might fit well with Alex's welcoming, gentle nature. At the same time, attention hog that he is, being an only pet in might suit him just as well!

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.

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: Leukemia-Virus-FeLV/

With so much to recommend him it's hard to imagine Alex not moving into a loving home with someone real soon. Contact us to meet him today!

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.
