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 male cats and dogs, he wants to live that bachelor life though, no lady kitties in your home please!
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!
Because Bad News Brown has on going treatment for his mouth, he's looking for a forever mom or dad that won't mind giving him meds and cleaning up his little mouth a couple times a week. His mouth causes him to drool, but hey dogs drool all the time and we still love them! Let's give Bad News the same chance! 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 keeps his humans from having to give him more medicine than necessary!
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 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. Bad News Brown is not contagious to people or dogs, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats.
