Sweet, Friendly, Loving

Sunflower is a sweet senior lady just looking for a lap to retire on! She's always excited to see her humans and lets her excitement show with her loud purring and one-of-a-kind "chirping".

Sunflower is a lovable orange tabby manx with the cutest nub tail. When she sees her humans approaching her or she's being petted, Sunflower will start purring and making her chirp-like meow, a sure sign that she's as happy as can be! Start rubbing her head, and Sunflower will roll around in your hand as you're petting her and will wiggle her little butt in the air to show how much she's loving it!

Playing isn't much of an interest for Sunflower in her adult years, but she's always up for a nice cuddle session. What's of much more interest to her is eating! This girl has a big round belly that is sure to make your laugh. She gets along with the other kitties in her room at APA! We don't know if she has met dogs or kids, but with her relaxed nature, she should be fine around anyone who respects her quiet time.

Due to a respiratory virus, one of Sunflower's eyes ruptured, and was removed. She can see just fine out of the other eye, however! We think it adds to part of her charm.

Sunflower is very much a "hang out on the couch" kind of cat, so she would be happiest in a quiet home where she can just chill and nap most of the day. She's just the sweetest, friendliest cat you'll meet, and she's sure to win your heart over within five minutes of meeting her! Come out and meet this lovely lady if you're looking for a chill kitty who's always happy to see you!

Sunflower is a healthy FIV+ (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) cat. FIV+ cats typically live long, healthy lives! For more information, please contact APA! or read this FAQ:

Sunflower 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. Sunflower is not contagious to people, dogs or other animals, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats. For more information, please contact APA! or read more by our Partner, Best Friends Animal Society:

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.
