Tamarind is a very handsome orange and white tabby with golden eyes - not coincidentally, he also has a heart of gold! He absolutely loves people and, while he's not a particularly vocal cat, he has one of the best purr-motors in the world. You will hear him before you see him, when he sees you approaching, he'll start purring in anticipation of getting to spend time with you. He loves being petted and being near people. Tamarind will wind himself around your legs to let you know that he's ready for some attention.
Tamarind is very calm and relaxed with the other cats in the shelter. He also gets along well with dogs. While he hasn't been introduced to any kids yet, we think that he could co-exist peacefully with just about any life form on the planet. He's so chill that you'll have to bring toys over to him to get him to play - he'll bat a wand toy around for a bit, but he prefers relaxing. Cue up some Netflix and Tamarind will be a very happy guy. The ideal home for Tamarind would be relaxed and full of love - and would have at least a small cat bed or two for him to pour himself into.
Tamarind 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. Tamarind 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.
