Friendly, pretty, vocal

Metapod loves people! This precious polydactyl pussy cat gives her human companions four thumbs up and she is not shy (or quiet!) about her love for her two-legged friends. Talking is one of the things she does best, so dust off that feline dictionary and get ready for lots of kitty conversation. There's nothing Metapod loves more than spending time with her guardians. Don't be surprised if she's by your side day and night, as she's been known to sleep on the bed with her human. She is not as keen on other cats and finds it hard to get along with them. But kids do not bother her and she is happy to get attention from young and old alike!

Metapod is a master of playtime, too. Give her a feather toy and some foil balls and watch this gorgeous girl let loose. She'll get spurts of energy as she darts and bounces around, but sure enough you'll soon notice a ball of beautiful black and white fur next to you as she's ready to relax and lounge. You will simply love Metapod's friendly personality.

Metapod 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. Metapod 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.
