Meet Bad News Brown, a sleek black haired beauty! Don't be fooled by his name - he's really a softie and a down-to-earth guy who just wants to be loved. He's super friendly and laid-back - he loves for you to hold him and give him chin scratches, and he'll be sure to inform you (politely, of course!) with his sweet meows if he wants more attention. Bad News loves his people, he's a total velcro cat. Wherever you are, that's where he wants to be. He's still learning what personal space means, he likes to lay across your keyboard while you work, get a sniff of your food while you eat, hang out in the bathroom while you shower- you get it, he wants to be with you. Once you sit down, he's right there purring away to let you know how happy he is to see you.
The ideal home for Bad News Brown would be one where his people are home often so that he can get plenty of petting and affection. If you've got some toy mice for him to hunt, he would be very happy. He loves batting them around the room and then running away with them in his mouth. He doesn't love being left alone and he'll let you know it when he sees you coming. Bad News Brown does fine with both cats and dogs! He has never met a stranger.
Bad News Brown came into APA! scraggly and with a rough coat, but he has blossomed into a true gentleman with a bit of TLC. It's heartwarming to see him blossom more and more each day - he can't wait to settle down in a forever home!
He's such a loving boy and he deserves a warm bed to call his own. In return for keeping him safe, clean & comfortable he'll roll over on his back so you can give him belly rubs!
Bad News Brown eats a prescription, hydrolyzed protein diet. It keeps his furr looking silky and smooth. He tends to get a bit bald when he eats normal food.
Before his stay with APA!, Bad News Brown had been declawed. As a result of this he must remain an indoor cat.
Bad News Brown has tested positive for FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus). FeLV cats have a virus that causes a weaker immune system - they do not have cancer! For the most part, felvies are just like any other cat. You could not pick one out of the crowd, and they generally do not require much additional care. As a bonus, we waive their adoption fees! APA! provides full coverage and treatment for any FeLV-related issues that arise after the time of adoption. Cats with FeLV typically have a shortened lifespan - we like to compare it to the lifespan of adopting a senior kitty, with the added benefit that they don't have chronic senior health problems, and that FeLV related medical care is covered. Bad News Brown is not contagious to people, dogs or other animals, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats.

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.
