Meet Godiva! No, we're not talking about the lady version or Belgian chocolates. Think sleek, black fur, soft cuddles and the cutest, little pink tongue! Oh yes, there's also a nicked ear and impressive vampire teeth that add extra character, and, this love machine has an extra rumbly purr!
Godiva is an affection boy who, unlike most of his kitty brethren, adores belly rubs! He will flop over on his back, present his tummy and welcome your touch. He makes frequent requests for snuggles too! Perhaps from past experience, he has his skittish moments. He doesn't like being picked up or held and he is cautious of people when they're standing up. He is also hesitant to approach when you're sitting. It's understandable, we humans must look pretty intimidating from way down there. But, lay down and this loving boy is all over you!
Godiva is low-energy overall. But, in the evenings he'll get the zoomies and will do a few laps around and around. Then he'll lie down with high hopes of some loving! He likes to play and is especially fond of the laser pointer. He'll chase it until he's all tuckered out.
Godiva has an endearing way of meowing and chirping at you when you're interacting with him. But, if you're busy with other things, he's perfectly quiet. Claw trims aren't a problem for this cool cat. Give him some pets and he'll relax and start kneading the air, making trims a breeze. Godiva is such a good boy and doesn't scratch the furniture. He does like to sharpen his claws on the carpet and an occasional wall, so a variety of scratching implements are recommended.
Godiva would make an excellent companion cat for a person or people who understand and respect his preferred forms of affection. He is such an engaging kitty who is always ready to play, chat and love you. We're yet to find any chocolates that can do that! Contact us to set up a meet and greet with sweet Godiva today.
Godiva 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. Godiva 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.
